    Yes wait an hour and test and add.
    Read Pool School on how to shock, especially the part on knowing when you're done.
    Keep at shocking
    till the CC's are .5 or less,
    You lose 1 or less on the overnight chlorine drop test.
    And the water is clear, if you don't have a FAS-DPD test kit.

    Thanks using a FAS-DPD test kit received yesterday. Algae is still present at 1.5 correct?

    It actually means that the chlorine is killing organics which is most likely algae.

    Re: shocking please help

    It's way late for your question, but I just wanted to mention, at a FC of 37, you're WAY higher than needed shock levels. You only need to keep it at about 20-25. Anything higher and I'd be afraid of the liner fading.

    How does your water look?

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Re: shocking please help

    Still shocking today adding less and less chlorine but can't break the CC1. Still a little cloudy I need to vacuum raining today and tomorrow. But I'm still running the numbers hope to see the sparkle tomorrow Once i have CC.5 i will re check the other numbers and see if I need to make any other adjustments. Thanks for asking
