    Going on vacation for 1 1/2 weeks, what to do for vacuum?

    I am leaving for vacation and was wondering, aside of hiring a pool person to take care of the pool, what people do when they need it vacuummed? I have the Diver Dave automatic cleaner which works well, but not sure what to do while I am gone?

    A far bigger issue will be chlorination....how will you take care of that?

    I have the pump and swg on timers, that is not an issue unless the power goes out. I am more worried about coming home to a pool full of leaves and dirt.

    Have you considered just getting a cover and putting that on it?

    Yea, thought about it, but also don't want to spend money. LOL. I have a friend coming out to swim and I have asked him to vacuum it for me.

    You could also ask your swimmer to check you CL level while you are gone to see if you need a couple extra ounces of CL.
