We are leaving to go on vacation for 13 days soon. I am wondering what should I do to prepare my pool to keep it fairly clean while we are gone. Should i put on the solar blanket. Temps are supposed to be in the upper 80s while gone...will that cause more problems by heating up the water??? How much Chlorine should I put in the pool. I have a 14000 gallon pool. How often should I run my pump for while I am gone...I can set it for 24 hours, 18 hours 12 hours or 6 hours. I worry about things going wrong with the pump...I don't have anyone to clean skimmer basket out...It gets dumpe out once or twice per day. Do I run it or leave it off until I come home? What can I expect when I get back? I know I should not worry about it...because I know I can clean it up with lots of Chlorine, but does anyone have any advice?
