    When to start OCLT

    How late should it be to start the OCLT? Just sun off the pool? Dusk? Night? And should I retest before sun-up?

    I start mine at dark. I used to feed the pool around 10pm when I got off work and I'd get up at 5am before the sun peaked up to say GOOD MORNING!
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
