    Help---leaving home for first time

    My husband is wanting me to go out of town for a couple of days but I am afraid to leave my pristine pool . What should I do to prepare for being gone for two or possibly three days to prevent coming back to green water?

    If you will only be gone three days, raising the FC level to shock level before you leave should be enough. A solar cover would also help, but isn't required for only three days.

    So must update. I went away for two days and came back to a perfectly clear and clean pool. I soooo love the BBB method!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
