    Stenner will make you lazy....

    and I've taken to testing weekly. I tweak the pump run time just a weeee little bit every week and add just in the neighborhood of 20 oz MA every week. Right now I have it dosing 3x a day 30 min at 0930, 15 min at 230 pm, 15 min at 730 pm with 6%

    I know ... bad BBBer for not testing daily...

    but really ....

    Actually, I would say you are an excellent BBB'r for understanding your particular pool and knowing what to do and what not to do. Very nice work.

    Shame on you!

    While I'd never ADMIT to not testing like a good TFPer. A friend of a friend told me that they sometimes test only once a week.

    You guys are awesome. I'm doing my best to give back where I can ... But keeping up with you would take super human abilities.

    Just don't let it slip to long, personally I find I only have to make manual adjustments to my chlorine level or adjust my chlorine injection pump when there is a big change in bather load or water temperature, but I still test every 3 or 4 days usually, just to sty on top of things. Of course in my case bather load seems to vary considerably, with a lot more activity on the weekends, but not every weekend.

    Im expecting mine to climb gradually through the summer as the water temp rises. If we have a big bather load over the weekend I test and dose. If the water looks 'off' I test and dose. Other from that ... smooth sailing.

    Coming from someone who is pool stored it must seem that way, going a (any) stretch without problems.

    Luckily, I found this site before I got pool stored. I still feel the SWCG is like "magic" since I rarely need to do much. I do worry after a huge down pour (last 3 days) and make sure to increase testing regime due to so much extra water. Otherwise it's almost like email- Fire and forget
