    Question about using pucks while on vacation

    I will be gone for 7 days in June. It took me 8 months to get my CYA down from 360 after switching to BBB. I don't want to mess up as when are on tight water restrictions and draining is out of the question.

    This is my current test results

    FC 6 Need to add chlorine
    CC 0
    PH 7.6
    TA 90
    CH 240
    CYA 40---Yea
    Borates 60 (Have a difficult time determining the color between 50 and 80, guesstimating in between)

    Pool has full sun until 4:30pm and figure temps in Dallas will be in 90's

    I have read several posts and gleamed this info: My 3 in pucks which weigh 8 oz will raise FC by 2.9, CYA 1.8, lower pH .15.
    My pool has a spa overflow and a negative edge, so a high amount of aeration.

    I would need to add 6 pucks to the inline feeder to maintain proper FC. My cya will raise 10.8 ppm, not sure what the results of my ph will be

    Am I on track??

    I wouldn't think twice about it. I keep my cya at 50 dead East of you. (and 60 wouldn't kill it for the FC that burns off it)

    The PoolMath app at the top of the page is your friend. Use effects of adding chemicals at the bottom with your known gallons.
