Recommendation for Pool Math App

I find the Pool Math logs are especially useful such as Add a Note, Track expenses and perform maintenance in addition to the test results. Currently I "add a note" when I add water to my pool due to evaporation in the hot summer months. It would be nice to add that feature in Perform Maintenance section - it currently has backwash, clean filter, brush walls and vacuum. Add a 5 item for "adding water". It would need to have option to either add "inches" or via "amount of time". it is unlikely anyone has a volume flowmeter on their fill line (at least I do not) but I do watch how many inches I add (monitor in the skimmer) or just set my alarm for a time - i.e. 45 minutes. I currently add this info as a NOTE but would be nice to have it as part of the maintenance section. Thanks.

For what it’s worth, I’ve wanted this feature as well. I calculated a rough flow rate by filling up a 5 gallon bucket form the hose I use, and add both the time and the approx gallons to my note.
If ‘add water’ were a first class feature, it’d also be nice to keep track of how much was added last month like can be done with CL and MA and other chemicals.

Even better, just allow the user to define arbitrary fields and track them. Then you could track the number of leaves blown into your pool if you wanted, or the weight of pollen dumped from the skimmer basket. I'm not into that, but somebody might be. Instead of endless requests to track this and that they could eliminate all future requests by allowing the creation of arbitrary fields and tracking them.
