    Grandchildren, pools, and bodily functions

    It occurred to me this weekend that I've neither seen nor understood the impact of the old "peeing in the pool" issue. I have 6 grandkids (and a couple of slovenly brothers and in-laws), and while they all say they wouldn't dare, I noticed over a several hour span that I was the only one that ever had to use the facilities (I like the shrubbery on the north side of the house, but Ms Dogface really raises h*ll and says I'm drawing flies! The idea!). So, I suspect chlorine demand goes up... and, as needed I add bleach, but, are there any other conditions/requirements?

    I read the string started by Chem Geek in 2007..... that was an hour ago, and I just got the hysterical laughing under control enough to write this....

    Not really, just make sure that your FC doesn't fall below minimum and you will be fine.

    You need to read the thread last year by '8cornflakes' for a good report on what "No P in the ool" really means.
