We are leaving to go out of town today and come back Monday. This is my first pool and also my first absence from it. I will be able to balance the pool this afternoon but won't be able to again until Monday. My chlorine target is generally 5ppm and I lose maybe 2ppm a day. Can I put enough chlorine in today to bring it up to ~9-10ppm to last over the weekend? My daughter and her grand mother will still be around, can they safely go swimming in this level of chlorine without bleaching swimsuits, etc.?
For that matter, both my wife and I will be gone for an entire week this summer. I'm guessing I can't jack up the chlorine to ~16ppm to compensate for that week, can I?
