    can you tell when someone pees in the pool?

    Usually when I get out of my pool I dont smell like chloramines at all. We had a party over labor day and I noticed that two of the kids were not leaving the pool to go to the bathroom. At the end of the day I definitely had a much stronger chloramine smell. Is pee from two kids enough to cause this?

    It was probably just the high bather load and your chlorine doing it's job.

    Did you notice a higher than expected chlorine demand? If so it could be from the kids. There also could have been more than just the two.

    hah could be, but everyone else at least got out to use the bathroom. I dont measure my chlorine all the time, I just added about half a gallon of 8% at the end of the day.
