I recently learned the hard way that FC loss is not linear or constant. At a target FC of 5 ppm, I was losing about 2-3 ppm per day, so I thought that for a 5 day vacation, adding 3x5=15 ppm would be plenty of chlorine. But it was not enough and I got lots of algae.
I read some posts and learned that FC loss is closer to a percentage of FC. It looks like my loss is around 50% per day. So for another upcoming vacation of 5 days, I am thinking it will be impossible/impractical to add enough liquid bleach alone. What do you suggest I add? I do have some trichlor pucks, but the floater always gets stuck on the ladder. I am thinking of somehow tying up the floater so it has some room to roam but does not reach the ladder. I do not have a cover. Any suggestions? Thanks!
