Finally got my TFTest kit, but now I am obsessed with the values of my water :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
I have a FC level of 3 and CC of 0.5 . Should I get rid of them right away, or should I shock once a week ?

0.5 CC is nothing to worry about. Just keep your FC at the top of the recommended range for your pool and you will not ever need to go through the shock process. (FYI: I say that because shocking a pool is a process and not a one time application dispensed on a schedule :)) Enjoy your pool! Looks like you are in the early stages of sparklypoolitis! :)

Have you ran the OCLT (overnight chlorine loss test) yet? That will really determine whether you need to shock or not. As Zea said, there's no "schedule" to shocking. You only shock when you need to.
