You can model it in Excel or Quattro.  Basically, as the
rates climb you are alos removing more with each water
change. Technically, the level cointinues to rise but at an
infiintely small level after a while. Of course, we don't
do exactly 50% changes and we don't do exact dosing. So for
our purposes the level essentially levels off. Sometimes up
a little; sometimes down a little.
