    Pool Maintenance During Vacation

    This is my first year on the BBB method after 3 years of Baquacil . We successfully converted in June and things have been great .Thanks to everyone on here for sharing all of this wisdom.
    We use approx . 4 gallons of clorox per week . Generally 2 gallons on Sunday night and 2 gallons on Wednesday night .
    The question is what to do while on vacation . I have read about taking it to shock level and also about using pucks . If raising it to shock level and keeping the solar cover on over that period (9-10 days) is a reasonable route to take that is what I would really like to do . I would rather not have to have anyone come and add chlorine over that time . Any thoughts ?

    Having someone come by and check the pool is by far the best solution. If that isn't possible, raising the pool to shock level and leaving it with a solar cover on is a fairly good plan.
