    Vacation what to do with pool

    I am leaving for vacation soon and will be away from my pool for 7 days. I live in the middle of the country and most of my friends are coming on vacation with me therefore will have no one to watch pool. I am currently on the Bleach Bromine Baking soda plan, How would you suggest I keep my pool as clean as possible while I am away. I just invested in a pool pump time and will be installing shortly.

    Thanks in advance.

    Best way to go is:

    1. Cover the pool if possible. Solar cover would be easiest, winter cover is a pain to put on but would help a lot.
    2. Raise the FC to shock level based on your CYA.
    3. Put a few pucks in a floater, realizing that your CYA will increase a bit while you're gone.

    Doing all 3 would be the best method.

    Also... not sure what you mean by "Bleach Bromine..." but I'm guessing that was a typo and you meant "Bleach Borax Baking Soda" or BBB, the old name for TFP methods.
