    Bather Load

    I keep reading about "high bather load". Is there a way to calculate it? Or is it just trial and error, keeping track of number of people and how testing is affected?

    I think there are some ways to estimate it, but there is no need to try to be exact.

    Just add a couple ppm of FC before a lot of people are going to swim and check the levels after.

    Use all the formulas you want, the next day FC will still be lower than you expected
