    Going on vacation-- how to prepare

    So, I'm leaving home around the 24th and will be gone up to 3 weeks. I'm thinking I should provide for a 2-2.5 fc loss per day while I'm gone and factor that to set my si-45 to run for 8hrs @ 80% the time I'm away. I'm also thinking to build my fc up to 10ppm prior to leaving to provide a...

    The two manual timers, both intermatic t104pdc are tied together to run my filter and boost pumps. My new intermatic 1353me includes freeze protection. I want to make sure it turns on both pumps when necessary. It seems mode 3 will only turn on the filter pump. It's there a way to fully...
