    Pool party

    Do you guys up the chlorine in your pool before you have a party? I'm going to have 20 teenagers in my pool tomorrow for a bday party. Just wondering. Thanks.

    I'd bump up the FC another 3 points over normal.

    jrh1010:

    I test the water about a half-hour before the party and dose FC to the high end of the target range for my CYA level. In fact, I err on the side of having it be a point or so above that as opposed to having it any lower. I've done this for every pool party and it's worked well. No one ever said a word about their being "too much chlorine". In fact, several people commented that the water had a good feel to it and was not irritating to their skin or eyes (although pH plays a role in that as well). Many thought it was a salt pool.

    Don't be surprised if the water loses some of its sharpness after the party, though. That's normal after a high bather load even with adequate chlorine. Just give it extra filtering time and top off the chlorine to the top of the target after the party and all will be well.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
