Okay the pool is 29000 gallons plaster in ground with a sand filter.
PH 7.0
Chlorine 0
ALK 90
CH 200
CYA 35
Should I start by raising PH and then move to SLAM?
Thanks Guys

Yeah, if you want to raise it to 7.2 nows the time. Or just put some aeration such as from a fountain on it.

Consider the CYA as 40 and dose it per this --> FC/CYA Chart
Plain, unscented, non-thickened, Non-Clorox brand plain bleach or liquid chlorine only.

Carry on! :salut:
