    Going in vacation for 20 days

    Hi all,

    I am going in vacation for 20 days and I have some questions regarding the pool.

    I have SWG and it works awesome. I also have rising PH as you can tell. I have no one that I can trust to mesure the PH and adding acid every other day

    I don't want to het the PH crazy high and damage the cell. I was thinking of turning it off and put chlorine pucks in a float and have someone just add pucks every few days. My FC is 7, CYA is 70 and PH as of today is 7.6 /was 7.5 yesterday/.

    So is it a good idea described above or there is something better I can do?

    Thanks

    how high will your pH go?? are your jets disturbing the surface? if so, I would aim them all down to minimize surface agitation. you cant have someone go and add a pre-determined about of acid a few times?

    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!

    Jets are turned down but have spillway from the spa to keep water balance 2 hours a day

    The PH goes above the max on the test kit in just few days
