Top off water

Would you consider the top off water that you add through the week as part of your weekly PWC's?

No because you're not replacing anything except for the water that evaporated. All the salts and nutrients are still in your tank.

As mentioned, it does not count as PWC. That is a lot of evaporation, you have a large tank/sump?
