It is my 30th birthday today and my wife and I are celebrating by having pool parties on both Saturday and Sunday with we assume a decent amount of people getting in the pool.
This site has been perfect with all of the recommended chemical levels and other advice and the water has been in perfect to really good condition the whole summer so far.
My CYA is around 50 and my chlorine is consistently around 7 without too much trouble. However, I am wondering what most of you do for pool parties. Do you add chlorine to shock level (or quite a bit higher) before or after the pool party? I don't want people to complain about a high chlorine level, but then again I don't want to have my chlorine drop too much either.
