    My OCLT Results

    Hi guys,

    this post is a continuation from this thread: fighting-with-my-cc-t46234.html

    In the middle of me trying to tweak my pool chemistry last week, my appendix decided to burst. I was in the hospital a couple days and couldn't tend to the pool, so now I'm back again.

    After I got out of the hospital here's how the pool read:

    FC - 0
    pH - 7.6
    TA - 150
    CH - 250
    CYA - 80

    *Water crystal clear and blue.

    I added bleach ASAP, then did the OCLT last night. Before bed the FC was 9 and the CC was .5... This morning the FC was 7.5 and the CC was still .5

    Let me guess, continue shocking?

    Thanks!!

    Ouch... sorry to hear about the appendix. No fun!

    Like Bama said, "Yep" to the continued shocking. The fortunate thing is that your water is still clear and it shouldn't take long. Could've been worse!

    Okay I think I might be there!

    After shocking last night, this morning was FC - 12.5 , CC - ZERO!!.. I noticed the CC test did turn a very slight pink a few minutes after I tested, but I think that was just from it sitting.

    So am I ready to just add my daily bleach (1 quart) and enjoy a "trouble free pool" ????

    You did not mention what your FC was last evening. If you had a drop of 1.0 or more of FC overnight, you need to continue the shock process.
