zero to 24 in a 15000 gallon pool will take 543 ounces. That's 4.5 121 oz jugs of Clorox 8.25% concentrated bleach just for the initial dose. You will need to replenish it frequently.

Brush, brush, brush. Clean everything. Ladders, stairs, light niche (remove and scrub). The only thing you lose FC to at night is algae or bacteria. Test in the evening when fully dark. Morning before sunrise.

Thank you for your response been brushing and vacuming daily needed or not ,light niche great idea since its a under water light in deep end will have to figue out how to remove

Usually a single screw at 12 o'clock on the light face needs to be removed. At the bottom of the light there is a tab. Screw comes out, tilt top outward and lift out of lower tab.

All brands are slightly different so your mileage may vary...

It's a gross, but VERY satisfying feeling to see a cloud of algae come out of a light niche when you scrub it (TOILET BRUSH!). Especially after you've been just failing OCLT, like you are and I was.
