    I'm Going to Disneyland!!

    Going to DL next week, gone for a week, and I am going to attempt this with a trichlor floater. I will be having a teenager watch the dog but I don't trust her with the pool. Chemicals and measuring accurately are not her strong suit.

    Last night's results
    FC 6
    CC 0
    pH 7.2
    TA 160
    CH 100
    CYA <20

    My preparations:
    Water is currently clean and clear
    passed an OCLT Monday night
    filter is going to get a re-charge
    I ordered a PoolSkim (should be here by Monday)
    Pump is on a timer, split between early AM and afternoon swim time
    4 lb trichlor disposable floater has been introduced, 10K gallon holes have been cut per pkg instructions
    FC was 6 when the floater was added this AM

    Poolcalculator shows this will add +33 FC, +20 CYA and pH -1.76 and Salt +27 to my 10K gallons

    Does this sound like I will be successful?

    I would also raise the FC to shock level on your way out the door.

    You could just have asked her to pour a bottle into the pool every few days ... no measuring or accuracy required.

    Bring lots of cash. Expensive is not a strong enough word for Disneyland. The food there makes the airport look like a bargain.

    Oh, and the pool - raise the water level a couple inches to allow for a hot spell.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    I know about the $$$ requirements of DL...

    I will add the extra water, thanks for the reminder.

    I am hoping that I can confirm the floater is providing enough CL for each day... and I needed the CYA anyway. This just provides me both answers.... hopefully.
