    Prepping for a party

    We're going to have a bunch (read 30+ people) over for a pool party in about 2 weeks (First one! Much excited!).

    How early should I bump up my FC? I've read that it would be acceptable to bump it up to just under SLAM level - for us, SLAM is 12, so Aiming for 11?

    People will be here for about 4 hrs - should I test during swim time? Can I add chlorine if needed during swim time, and if so, how to safely do so?

    Jandy CL580 cartridge filter. Jandy 1.0 hp filter pump, 1.5 hp booster/spa? pump.
    Aqualink RS One Touch controls. Paramount PC2000 In-floor cleaning system (1.0 hp pump?). Jandy LX pool heater, apparently broken.
    Missing so much gear due to previous foreclosure, it's sad.

    I do it the morning of. I would go about 8 ppm. Doing a quick test a couple of hours in is a good idea. And then boost to 8ish after. Make sure it stays above minimum at all times.

    You should be fine doing that. I woulnt worry about testing during the party unless you just want to... or maybe if you did test, you could show off your chemistry prowess and do a show and tell!
