    A vacation doesn't count as getting out of the pool to get another beer and then jumping back in... You should know better!

    Pooldv,

    Not often that I will ever be able to pull a one-up on you but in this case I need to strike while the opportunity is hot... Wife and I just got back from a three week vacation to Europe. I had a neighbor check the water level and empty the skimmer baskets, but nothing else. Here is a pic of the mess I found when I got back this past Friday the 15th..

    After 21 days on vacation...

    Nice try though!!!

    Re: Help! I came home from vacation to THIS!

    Pooldv,

    Besides showing off , I believe the point you were trying to make, and the one that I completely agree with, is that if you keep your pool by TFP standards and have some automated way to add FC, such as a SWG or Stenner, then taking a short vacation should not be an issue.. I often see where people say their pool turned green overnight. I suspect that the process took significantly longer, they just never noticed due to lack of testing.

    Thanks,

    Jim R.

    Re: Help! I came home from vacation to THIS!

    Yes, there are definitely a number of signs that occur before a pool turns green. Let's recap.

    Slightly elevated FC usage
    Slightly cloudy water
    Slightly slimy pool walls
    More FC
    More cloudy
    More slimy
    Even more FC
    Green fuzzies on the walls
    Trouble maintaining FC
    Very cloudy water
    Green swamp!
