Would prefer not to come home to a green pool. Should I raise my cl to SLAM levels before I leave?
I don't have anyone I trust to come over and test and add chemicals while I am gone. My pool get ZERO shade during the day worried my cl will drop 0 and then have algae.

Like Texas Splash said, if your CYA is low enough, pucks should do the trick for you. I have done this a couple of time while traveling and it has worked great.

You may not have anyone to trust testing but if you can get someone in there twice or three times to drop pucks into a floater and you can afford some rise in CYA, I see no problem. Worse case senerio you can drain off some water when you get back possibly before a good rain to lower back the CYA.
