So my family and I are going on vacation in about a month and we will be gone for 3 weeks. I was thinking that it would be safer to close the pool down while I am gone instead of trusting my neighbors to adjust the chemicals and clean out the skimmer. If I make sure all the chemicals are where they need to be and then toss on the winter cover and leave the pool pump off for the 3 weeks will I be alright? I was also thinking I could bring the pool up to shock level before leaving just to make sure everything stays fine while I'm gone.
What do you guys think?
