    You get a gold star

    Your levels are perfect for the SLAM.. once you start the SLAM you only check FC and CC until you pass the OCLT below in my sig great job

    Only other thing to check is how much bleach you have on hand to wrap it up.

    Make sure you have enough reagents for the FAS-DPD test as you will test often. It stinks to have to have to pay for Express delivery.

    During the slam you only need to check the FC and CC. Did you post those two values reversed? 17 is an insane amount of CC!

    I just received a TF-100 and in the Chlorine Drop Test it says: The total of FC and CC should be recorded as TC (total chlorine).
    Is this not correct or a misprint ??
