    Is this normal

    I just installed a new SWG. At night after the pump shuts off, I test the FC and its around .5

    I test in the morning after the pump comes on and the FC is around 3.......How does it go up overnight???

    It doesn't, unless you have some other source of chlorine in the pool (floater, etc.)

    What test (OTO, DPD, FAS/DPD) are you using? A testing error is the most likely suspect.

    Is there any chance that the pump is programmed to run for a while in the middle of the night?
