    EXpected test results after heavy use???

    Is there any rule of thumb regarding expected test results after a day of heavy use?

    We had a lot of friends over Saturday and a bunch of teenage boys jumping and splashing around for several hours. I tested the water the next morning and found that my FC went from 8.0 to 5.0 and I now have 0.5 CC where I had none before.

    I assume that the heavy use and tracking of grass clippings are the cause of the changes and I'm not real worried.

    One other CYA has been well below the TFT100 test jar reading ability, but finally I can see the dot dissapear at 23!!!!!! Took 2 weeks for the CYA to show up in the water. One more bottle to go.

    I would have expected much greater FC loss and much higher CC, actually.

    Look up party in the search box and you'll get some idea of just how bad it can get.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
