    Heading out on vacation for 4 nights. Should I float a couple of pucks (my CYA is already around 50), or should I just get the pool up near mustard level and let it float down until my return? Since my slam my water has looked amazing and I don't want to let it get away from me now.

    Depends on how high your CYA is.
    Do you have a cover?

    I might raise the FC to normal shock level and add a couple pucks to a floater. Should be no worries for just 4 days.

    I vote for taking it up to normal SLAM level and then in four days if anything shows up on testing you will be able to nip it in the bud immediately. I don't think you'll have too much problem, especially as the weather is still cool.

    I like the advice above. Your pool should look great when you return.
