    I passed my OCLT! (p.s. I studied hard)

    I checked my chlorine last night: FC 3 CC 0 TC 3
    checked it again this morning: FC 3 CC 0 TC 3
    I passed my OCLT!

    My water looks and feels WONDERFUL!

    I totally credit the wonderful guidance that I've gotten here on TFP! Thanks guys!

    My TA is coming down: was 120, now 90,
    pH is currently 7.2 and I am aerating to bring it back up so I dose pH again to bring the TA
    down a little further.
    and my CYA is coming up: have my socks hung, most of the CYA is dissolved, will check again in a few days.

    Sparkliepoolitis is a wonderous thing!

    You can just knead the socks a bit and it will probably all gush out quickly if it is saturated, as it sounds it is. Water looks great, and that pool looks HUGE!
    POOL: Intex ultra new in 2014 (32 x 16 x 52) (seasonal; on concrete pad covered with 1.5" extruded or whatever foam insulation sheets - ugly, but comfy); added a through-wall skimmer; I add salt for feel. EQUIPMENT: Pentair SuperFlo pump (1HP, 2SPD); Pentair cartridge filter (200 sq. ft); Pentair MasterTemp natural gas heater (400,000 btu) Climate/Location: Eastern Nebraska

    Thanks for the kudos!

    I did knead the socks. It had been a few days and the water looked like milk!(when I squeezed the socks)
    Then it dissipated and everything was wonderful!

    It IS huge! I told my husband years ago that I wanted to zero landscape our yard.
    Silly man, thought I meant mulch!

    Between the pool and a 2 1/2 car garage I don't have a lot of grass to mow anymore. I've left the side yard (18' x 40' approx) for the puppies. There is about 10' - 12' left on 2 sides facing the garage and the back fence, and 6' clearance on the side fence and house sides. I started out planning to get a 16'. Then I thought, why not go to 18' or 22"? THEN I saw the 26'! That was all she wrote. It really is too big for my yard but, I'm not giving it back!
