We are planning an overnight trip: leaving early in the morning, staying overnight, and then coming home later the next evening.
We don't use the chlorinator ever. We had an issue with it two years ago and I don't want to use it, especially when we are not home (not an option). We use strictly liquid chlorine, therefore I am wondering how to make sure our chlorine levels stay above minimum the whole time.
The only thing I can come up with is adding enough liquid chlorine to bring it to a SLAM level and letting it drop on its own, so it never falls below the minimum; however, with that, don't I have to run the filter 24/7, all night long? Not fond of that idea either but not sure what our other options are.
What about those floating chlorinator things? Could we get away with using just that? Never used one before and don't know much about them but are they useful? And would that be better than adding all of that chlorine and running the filter all night (when really there is no actual need to SLAM)?
I really wouldn't mind staying on our trip a day longer but the pool is definitely one of the reasons I am cutting it short only because I am not sure how to handle it while we are gone.
