I've read over some post and I only have a little time since I still don't have internet installed at my new house..uggg... long story. I get the opportunity to camp out at Starbucks a couple of times a week. Here's my situation: hubby got told today to take his vacation or lose it. This is both great and not so great due to the expense we've had moving into a new house. Anyway, we are going to go away for a week, leaving in a few days.
So..I have no pool cover. I have no local friends yet.
My CYA has been brought down to 90 at best with a pretty significant drain and refill. It was hitting over 200 when we moved in June 6. I've been testing and keeping my numbers at the recommended rates. The cost of bleach is leading me to believe that I need to drop do another major drain and get my CYA to about 40. That's another post though.
What is your best advise? I do have the cartridge thing from the frogger system that I took out after my 1st week. I'm just trying to figure out the best way to handle the pool before I leave and hope for the best while I"m gone. I'm considering putting the cartridge back in and adding come pucks and just straighten out the CYA when I get home. I think I would rather deal with drain and refill than green pool. Only one I've ever deal with before. I've never had any issues with algae because I've always used TFP! Thoughts?
