Do another OCLT tonight. If you confirm, all good.

The process can be very quick if things are caught before the system is overwhelmed with algae.

To be honest, I probably would not have caught it early on like this. It only raised a red flag because I was adding in the salt to get my SWG started up and noticed it was not producing any chlorine. Two factors came in to play, not enough salt for the SWG to show FC levels, and any FC in the pool was being consumed by the algae or whatever else was in my water. You guys have all been a big help so far being a new pool owner.
