We will be going on a week long vacation next week. We will have someone here watching our dogs that can help out with the spa but I want to try to minimize the work they have to do to care for the spa while we are gone. From what I understand from reading on here, I should:
1.) Lower the temp(I can go down to 80)
2.) Raise FC to shock level(CYA is around 30, so FC maybe 12?)
Any other suggestions?
Also on a water chemistry note, I have been running the dichlor and bleach method now for 2.5 months. Not an issue at all to complain about. I love it.
My numbers when I started were
Over the past two months TA and pH have slowly risen. Todays numbers:;
TA-100(might be 90 The water is light red at 9 drops, but I do notice a stronger color intensity of red when I add that 10th drop)
From what I remember reading on here, it is normal to have a slow rise of pH and TA over time.
So in preparation for vacation Id like to adjust these numbers if you guys think I should before I go. What do you guys think and what chemicals should I use to adjust if you think it is necessary?
