Preparing pool for 1wk of vacation. avg chlorine loss/day is 2ppm, pH rises on avg 0.1 per day. I don't want to bother other people to add chemicals in midweek. I only have bleach. Is it bad for the pool and equipment to start the vacation with a pH of 6.8 and Chlorine level of 17 so that at the end of 1wk, both numbers are at the min acceptable range?
(CSI will be -0.62 with pH of 6.8. Chlorine shock level is 15.)
other numbers: temp 80, TA 90, CH 360, CYA 40.
