    Cover while on vacation?

    Hi, we have an Intex ultra frame 14x42 for about 2 weeks now. When we go on vacation for a week this summer should we put the cover on? I Plan on setting pump on timer while gone.

    Great idea. Then you won't lose any FC to sunlight.

    If you raise FC to shock level before you cover, it will probably still be above minimum when you get back. Don't be alarmed if you see high CC when the cover comes off. Without the UV rays from the sun, they won't dissipate. They'll go away in a day or so with the cover off.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
