Over the years, I have heard all kinds of things about swimming pool chemistry that I would classify as mythology. Many of these things are rooted in some sort of misunderstood truth. One thing that I suspect walks the line between fact and myth is that increased temperature would result in higher chlorine consumption. I did a search and read through a few posts on the topic, and I see that warmer water will lose more FC due to sunlight than cooler water. I also saw that algae will grow faster in warmer water, which will result in more rapid consumption of FC.
So I'm curious to learn more about what water temperature does. With regard to the combination of sunlight and temperature, how might Cyanuric acid make a difference? Are there other situations in which increased temperature will result in increased FC consumption?
What about a situation such as a heated pool with a solar cover. Here we would have warm water, but limited exposure to sunlight. Should it be expected that there would be increased FC consumption?
