I will be out of town for 6 days and trying to calculate how much trichlor Tabs I will need to put in the pool. I also plan on bringing the pool up to Slam level (24 PPM) just prior to leaving.
I will start off with current measurements.
FC 8 (this is the current level that I am maintaining FC)
As of right now, pool on average is consuming 2 PPM of chlorine per day, so that means I will need 12 PPM while I am gone. Looking at pool math, a 8 oz tab (I think that is what a tab weighs) will increase FC by 1.8. So with the requirement of 12 PPM while I am gone, I am going to need 7 tabs which will increase my FC by 12.6 and CYA by 7.7.
Does that sound right?
I will be running the pump on its regular schedule while I am gone and will make sure between the skimmer and the side drain that they are at about 50 / 50.
I was thinking I could use cal-hypo since I could add a bunch of calcium with no negative effects but looks like that only comes in a powder.
Thanks for looking, greatly appreciated.
