    Happy RE: Need to leave pool for vacay. Now What?

    Go. TFP! Got home late last night, but anxious to see what pool looked like chemically. So after adding 121 oz of 8.25% bleach and covering with solar cover and mosquito netting before leaving on the 27th, 8 days, my numbers look awesome.
    CYA 80 pH 7.6 FC 9.5 CC <.5 TA 80 CH 175 Salt 3200
    Everything is right near what I want, other than FC. So quickest way to lower that is.......???? Sunshine, right???

    Will try to add pics later, in the daylight.

    Based on your CYA level, your FC is just fine. A little high but nowhere near SLaM level so it's okay to swim.

    Did you forget to put the water in there? Sure looks nice and inviting.


    I did have a question about the CYA test. How did you do it at night? I was under the impression that you needed to that one with bright sun at your back. Have you double-checked it during the day?

    Thanks, water was nice and clear after a quick brush and vac. Bright light in my kitchen. It was that level before I left taken at 3 pm.
