    Taking the BBB method too far!

    Last night as my head hit the pillow (and after some NyQuil so I could sleep through this bug I caught) I said to my wife: "Goodnight, Chlorine". That led to an interesting conversation this morning. Oh well, time to check my FC level!

    Her real name is Jennifer. She kept asking me to repeat what I had said, and I kept saying goodnight Chlorine...

    That ranks up there with a guy I worked with years ago that repeatedly dreamed he was trapped in a 3-D spreadsheet.

    How about when you're doing laundry and you pour bleach in and you catch yourself wondering "I wonder what the fc level of the water is?'. True story
    10,000 gallon inground, gunite, 500lb sand filter. Brand new to this pool thing.

    I wonder what the fc level of the water is?'
    I have done that math...it's about 250-300 ppm with NO CYA buffering. It points out just what small concentrations we deal with in pools and how safe pool water is.
