    Algae and vacation

    So we have had a ton of rain, I've been busy prepping for vacation and haven't paid as close of attention to the pool as I should be. Last night I raised the chlorine level as we have had a ton of rain. I go out this morning to test my water one last time before vacation and notice a ton of maybe dead algae on bottom of pool. So I dose it again and give it a good brushing. Is there anything I can do at this point to not come home to a green pool. I leave at noon today??!?!!?

    Just add bleach up to SLAM level, cover and hope for the best. Or have someone come add 1/2 gallon of bleach in daily to hold it at bay.

    Have a nice vacation and put it out of your mind. You know you'll have to deal with it on return.
