    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!

    When CC is .5 or less and the water looks fairly clear....and the sun no longer hits the pool

    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!
