Default Converging Continuity Residual

fjbac is on a distinguished road

I am running a 3D turbulent flow simulation using Fluent. All of my residuals except for continuity are converging below the default set point in Fluent of 0.001. Does anyone have experience or insight as to why this residual is so difficult to converge below 0.001.
