This is my first pool season using the full TroubleFreePool method and i've been thrilled.
Not a single algae problem, and beautifully clear water every day so far.
So why do i get the feeling like i'm about to blow it?!!!
i'm going on a short vacation.
It's only 4 days, but i don't have anyone that can stop by and check on the pool.
My routine is to check the FC and pH every morning before the sun hits the pool.
On average (without rain or heavy bathers), i've been losing about 1 ppm of FC each day. So as per poolcalculator, i'm adding about 25oz of bleach each morning.
(latest test results)
So, what should i do when i'm gone for 4 days?
i've searched on this forum about the topic, and these Trichlor Floater things keep being mentioned, but there's not much discussion on how to use them.
Also, i don't own a Trichlor Floater. Should i buy one?
There seems to be some disagreement whether Trichlor pucks can just go in the skimmer or not.
Would putting tricolor pucks in the skimmer for vacations be a problem? Or should i buy a floater?
The other thing i'm confused about is, how do you know how many pucks to put in?
i've got a bucket of the big 3" pucks left over from my pre-troublefreepool days. Is there a way of calculating how long they'll last?
This is all still new to me, any help would be appreciated!
