    CC level too high?

    After SLAMMing my pool I have been slowly lowering My SWCG run time to reduce the FC It stabilized around 9 and now Im slowly lowering it. My question is My CC was at 1 sometimes 1.5 before and during SLAM. Now Its is consistantly at .5. Its been .5 for almost 2 weeks'ish. Is that ok? The water only has a pink'ish hue when I start the CC test, then after 1 drop :clear. The hue is so faint, I count it as .5=1x.5.

    A lot of pools show .5 cc continually. As long as it doesn't go above that it's fine. If you really want to see what it is oyu can run the FC/CC test using a 25 ml sample. Then the drops are multiplied by .2 insead of .5.

    If CC is greater than 0 but less than .5, it will show up as .5

    If your CC is .02, it will show up on the test as .5; this is why you can ignore it if it only takes one drop to clear.

    Re: CC level too high?

    Great Idea on to run the FC/CC test using a 25 ml sample, and multiply by .2. Im going to try that this afternoon. So Just use 25ml water and same reagent amount? or double reagent?

    Use the same amount of R-0870 and R-0003.

    Really your CC is too high if you require more than one drop for either the 10ml or 25ml sample.
