I am new to TFP. I just finished my first SLAM, am really enjoying the results, and feel like I have a pretty good handle on things.
I am going out of town for 10 days and had a question about manging my pool while I am gone.
I have read a lot of threads about this and the suggestions I have seen are: get a liquidator, a stenner pump, get a neighbor to add bleach, put in some pucks if your CYA isn't too high......
What about just adding a ton of bleach before I leave?
My pool loses about 3 ppm pretty consistently. My CYA is 35. My goal FC is 5 and my shock FC is 14. If I am going to be gone for 10 days and I lose 3 ppm a day could I just add enough bleach to take my FC level to 35 *20 ppm above my goal)? I understand that my pH might be a little high when I get back, but I can adjust that pretty easily and at least my pool won't be green.
I am guessing there is a good reason not to do this since I have not seen this suggestion.
