    Is this right?

    I'm leaving for a week soon.
    My CYA is 60.
    My FC is 7
    My CC is 0
    I use about 2 FC per day.
    Can I add 3.5 gallons of Chlorine just before I leave and expect good a FC level a week later?

    The loss rate is proportional to the fc/cya ratio. With a higher ratio, your loss rate will be higher. So, it's not as easy as just adding enough for a two ppm loss per day. That said, at this time of year, you'll probably be fine with your plan.
