We will be out of town for a week, and I am not sure how to keep the pool in shape.
Here are my thoughts:
1. Add a lot of chlorine before we leave.
My pool looses about 2ppm a day which is replaced by about 2 Liters of bleach each day. Makes 14 ppm or 28 liters of bleach, and will bring the
initial level up to 19ppm before I leave. (usual level between 4-6ppm for CYA of 50) Is that too much? It shouldn't be since that is basically shock level so it shouldn't hurt anything. But is it that simple? Or is there anything else to think of?
Should I put the solar cover on as an extra precaution so the chlorine doesn't go down as fast or will that just heat up the pool too much in this weather?
Should I invest in one of these things that regulate your water level so it doesn't get too low?
We have a chlorinator for tabs; should I do that for week? I never used it so I guess I would have to play with the settings for a while to get a hang of it?
