Getting ready to head out for 9 days of vacation and trying to determine best way to handle pool. Pool is 25,000 gallon inground vinyl with sand filter, 2 skimmers, 2 main drains and SWG. Pool numbers are in check according to TPF recommended levels and water is pristine. No big trees or leaf problems to worry about. The way I see it, I have a couple of options:
1. Raise water level & FC level, lower normal SWG Chlorine output and let pump run 24 hrs while away
2. Raise pool to shock level, throw a couple of pucks in a floater (CYA currently at 70 for SWG) and leave pump off
3. Buy a timer and install prior to leaving and leave everything the way I normally operate the pool (pump run time ~12 hrs)
I am leaning towards option 1 or possibly 3, but would love some expert feedback.
