YES you will need to test your FC daily with the heavy use. Now if you find you are adding just about the same amount each day after a couple of weeks of testing then you can safely just add what you have been adding each da
You have all of this week to learn how much FC you lose each day and how much chlorine you are adding. I would have your parents add the average FC you have to add each day. Don't make it harder on them with testing. If you really want to "spoil" them have the chlorine add poured out into something so all they have to do and grab the one labeled Friday and pour it in.
Make sure to tell them to NOT have "good" clothes on when they do it as we know they will get polka dots if they do LOL
I would go ahead and order some more regents for testing LOL
Thank you! I bought four of these bottles today for fri- Monday and I’ll do the same! I didn’t have any empty bottles on handWhen I went on a short out-of-towner, I left the following for my grandson house sitter . . . I knew how much Cl was needed, so I measured that much into empty containers and labeled. He then dosed each one at the times (more or less) I had given him (wasn't critical to be exact). He just emptied the jug, rinsed with a little extra pool water, capped it back up, and left it for me to recycle. Worked out well for me.

So I tested again after a day of heavy use. And 90 degrees in full sun
My FC is 2.5
CC is 0 (sample didn’t turn pink at all with 5 drops of r0003)
Do I now add chlorine to bump back up to 5 or wait until tomorrow
So 30 oz per day- should they add it in the morning or evening?Well done!!!
In looking at the PM levels and how much you have added each day I say we will average it a bit on the high side and do 30oz for each addition. It is safe to swim up to your SLAM level of FC/CYA as seen in this chart: FC/CYA Chart so if it is a bit higher than you have been running it there are no worries about swimming or it going too low and risking an algae outbreak.
When you get back we will look at your logs again. to make sure it does not go lower that your minimum FC for your CYA.
Have fun and tell the kids to do LOTS of cannon balls to help get the pH up LOL
30 is less than I’m adding a day- is that ok though? I added an average of about 40 oz every 24 hours with a quick glance of the numbers. Or 30 2X a day for a total of 60? Can they do one addition of 60 oz vs two of 30? (They’re elderly and have 5 kids to attend to as well)So 30 oz per day- should they add it in the morning or evening?
Thank you!OH I did miss you were adding some in the morning! GOOD CATCH!!! Lets bump it up to 45 oz each time to be on the extra safe side since it will only be once a day.
Evening so it can work on the water overnight without the sun taking any FC with it. Make sure to tell them to NOT wear good clothes.
I agree! This isn’t sustainable. We’re going away for ten days in September, I’ll have to figure out if it’s best to just close Labor Day weekend at that point even if normally we’d be open until oct 1What will be interesting to see how the pool acts with once a day additions. That would make your life easier!
