Chemicals when Leaving for weekend

I am on week 4 of my new pool approaching the SWG turn on date . Currently I am Adding Liquid Chlorine daily.

Target Fc- 6
Ph- adjusting periodically

I am leaving on friday and coming back on Monday this weekend. The weather will be sunny in the 80’s. I lose about 2 ppm chlorine per day in those conditions. Should I adjust my fc to 10 ppm when I leave?

When I get back Monday I plan to add salt to work towards turning on the SWCG.

I would go a bit higher than 10 ppm. Your SLAM level is 24 ppm. So going to 20 ppm would not be an issue.

Unless the pool is covered.
