    Got my FC to high

    Went out of town for 3 days, and I turned up my SWG a little to high. I wanted to make sure I had plenty of chlorine in the pool on these full sunny days. FC was at 11 this morning when I got home. Do I just let it drift back down over the next couple days? Water is clear and 0 on CC even though there were 3 baby moles in the skimmer.

    If you've been maintaining CYA anywhere above 20, you're still well below shock level. It's safe to swim in right now. Just kill the SWG for a day or two and it should drop down to normal.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
