So, just ran my weekly test and all seems well.
FC - 6.5
CC - 0.5
TC - 7
CH- 350
TA - 90
CYA- 40
PH - 7.3

I am leaving the pool for 3 days. Pool is vacuumed, skimmer and pump baskets are clean, filter is backwashed, and water level is good. I have never used the chlorine pucks before. I loaded 6 of them and started testing different settings 3 days ago. I have it dialed in now I believe. Is there anything else I need to do before we leave?

Have fun.

Test your CYA when you return. In the future, for a short trip, you can bring your FC to SLAM level right before you leave and you will be OK. For more than 3 or 4 days, use pucks.
