I understand there a a lot of variable to consider when answering this question. I am just trying to get a "working range" of how much FC gets consumed in "normal" daily use? I have seen posts where people talk abou 4ppm FC being an average daily consumption.

AGAIN, assumptions and they are important. Consider all chems are in a normal balance, overnight test successful, pool water 80 to 85 covered with solar cover, no outside influences other than sun and swimmers (Vegas heat).

Would a range of 4 to 6 daily FC consumed be about right (again lots of variables of course)

In my pool, with it covered, I lose about 2.5 ppm per day right now.

In summer, I do not cover it (way too hot), my loss can range up to 5 ppm.

Our bather load is myself and wife, less than an hour per day.

I have a SWCG with CYA normally around 70 ppm.
