    "Over-circulation" and chlorine loss

    Ok, some days I just have too much time on my hands and think of off the wall questions! I am wondering if say, your pool can get by just fine on anywhere from 4 to 8 hours of circulation per day to get good water turnover and filtration-------if you lose any more FC just by running the pump filter 24/7 instead of your "normal" amount.

    I wouldn't think so. Whether or not the water is still or moving, you have the same amount of organics (or not) and the same sunlight exposure.

    Now, if the water is churning, looks like a rolling boil, I guess you'd lose a little more to evaporation.

    Now on to serious questions: If a man speaks in a forest, and no woman is there to hear him, is he still wrong?

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Yes, he's still wrong, and no you won't lose more chlorine, but then again there's no woman here to hear me so obviously I'm wrong!

    Does seeing you type count??
