Later this summer, during the height of Texas heat, we will be away for 9 days. I'm not worried about FC as the salt cell will be on and running and dialed back in. However, with a pump run time of 12 hours and 3 sconces, the pH does rise.
Are there any short-term solutions to controlling pH? For Chlorine there's obviously pucks, etc. Is there any slow dissolving muriatic acid type of deal in the marketplace?
Pentair and others have an auto acid dispenser (IntellipH I think it's called), but that could be an expensive item for 9 days.
After having some pool people take care of things in the beginning, then switching to me, there's nobody I trust with the care...especially with measuring pH, figuring out how much, being careful with acid around the dogs, etc.
