After finally running my system longer and at a higher % I got my chlorine up and ive been kinda keeping it on the higher end. Its coming in at 10 right now. We are going away for 8 days- do you think this is okay that way we will have no surprises when we come back?
Was also going to leave robot in pool. I will dial back the chlorine when we come back.

Ah - the beauty of the SWCG! Personally, I don’t change my settings when going out of town. I have my cell fairly well dialed in and know that it will maintain chlorine levels of 7-8. Even if there’s a drastic rise in temps with the sun blaring down all day, my levels might drop to 6-7, but I’m still safe. If generating to a chlorine level of 10, you should be just fine.

Sounds like a good plan.

By robot, do you mean a real robot or a suction/pressure side cleaner?

A dolpin CC plus. I never usually leave him i. The pool but thought this might be a good idea to keep pool clean during vacation.

OK -- can you add that to your signature. Sounds good.
