    another vacation question

    So my pools looks great, sparkly water....just completed shock process and upgraded my filter in the last couple of weeks. I have been tweaking my levels for the last weeks. Pretty stable now.

    FC 12
    CC 0
    CYA 60-70
    TA 70
    pH 7.5
    CH 300
    Bor 40
    Salt 3100

    50% on the SWG for 7 hours

    I have three days left to play with it before vacation.

    Leave it be? Try to tweak it more?
    I would really like to run it more like 6 hours, but want to make sure its stable....


    Thanks as always

    Right now, you look ok. I don't see much reason to try anything different until you get back home really.

    Re: another vacation question

    Got home late yesterday....I was gone for 10 days

    My plan was to add two 121 oz 8.25 percent jugs right before leaving.

    We had a ridiculous amount of rain at my house and the pool likely over flowed quite a bit.

    I had a moderate amount of debris to clean out but my

    FC=8
    CYA=60

    but someone stole my water after I ran my robot!

    Thanks again TFP!
