We will be away from home for eight days on vacation. It's our first pool and has only been completed since late April. It has a tab chlorinator that we've never used beyond when the pool builder was taking care of the pool. I've been using bleach since I took over. It holds 9 tabs if I remember right. That works out to about 15ppm for our pool which will be a little short of our normal needs.
I am planning on bringing up the chlorine level up a bit before we go and hope the tabs can keep it at the required levels. Does anyone have an idea how long the 9 tabs will last at the various settings (1-5)? Will they all be used up in a week? I'd test it out before hand but don't want to add any extra cya that I don't have to. Current cya levels are 40-45. The tabs will bring it up about 9ppm which should still put my levels in a good position.
Most of the people nearby that I could ask to add bleach are going to be with us on the vacation.
Any thing else I should be doing?
