    oclt question

    Thursday is my "test everything day" and here are today's results:
    FC 4.5 (going to add chlorine to goal still tonight)
    pH 7.5 (going to drop this down to 7.2 again)
    CC 0
    TA 200 (I am slowly getting this down, using what I feel like is a ton of muriatic acid and pH keeps climbing back up in a day or two)
    CH 300
    CYA 30

    My water is beautiful, the floor of the pool isn't slick, I think everything is ok. My question is, should I be doing random/weekly OCLT as an extra measure or is that only recommended when you know you have a problem?

    Thanks in advance!

    and...this was my first round of testing with the "Speedstir" and I must say it was a lot easier!

    There is no need to do the OCLT regularly, only when you suspect a problem and want confirmation or when you want to see if you are done SLAMing the pool.
