    Rain and Overnight FC loss test

    Can rain (about 1") impact the Overnight FC loss test? If so, by how much?

    Test results on June 6th @ 6:45PM EDT (with Taylor test kit)
    FC = 17.5
    CC = 0

    Test results on June 7th @ 7AM EDT (with Taylor test kit)
    FC = 13
    CC = 0

    Thanks

    It could have had some effect w/stuff being blown into the pool, no way to say how much effect.

    It appears you need to redo the OCLT again tonight.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Thanks, I will. Hopefully the rain stops. It's been raining for about 24 hours now and I'm feeling soggy

    Dang, sure hope the rain stops. No fun feeling soggy unless you are actually in the pool
