Found the forum by googleing a question, didn't really find an answer from using search function, everything pops up that is kind of opposite of what I want to know. Found lots of info about what to do with your pool when leaving for vacation...but I am looking for info on maintaining a pool at my cabin up north during the week while we are at the permanent home near our jobs; and only visit/use the pool on weekends, and maybe not every single weekend. I'm not new to pools, I've had one since I was 7 yrs old, and was the one elected to maintain it. But it seems by now, there would be some sort of automatic dispenser for chemicals or something like that. I can put a timer switch on the filter, and I guess while not the best timing, but can backwash the filter first thing when I get up there. Also thought about running a hose to the pool and installing a float switch to maintain water level, as to not suck air in through the skimmer. I'm just looking for options aside from hiring a "pool boy" as it seems it'd be quite expensive. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Thank You in Advance,
