    If you are asking whether or not a loss of 1 ppm or less of FC overnight is ok, then yes, that is correct.

    I cannot tell you what is a proper FC level for your pool though unless I know you CYA level. 5 ppm may be ok, but we need the CYA level to truly know.

    It is best to add chlorine in the evening, but any time of day is alright especially if you add chlorine consistently at the same time of day.
