Wanted to get some advice on the following
I am heading out of town for the long weekend Thursday - Sunday and looks like monsoon season is going to be active at least today - I just did my test which showed ;
FC-4
PH -7.8
TA - 70
CH - 250
CYA -30
CSI - 0 ( not sure why but that is what the app shows
Pool Temp -78
Anyway, I know rain will impact so is it better to add in the bleach today or float a tab for the 3 days or wait till I am back on Sunday to just adjust anything impacted with rain or sun the next few days ? If I float a puck I am thinking to pull Sunday to limit the CYA build
thanks

Bring your FC up to about 10 with liquid chlorine, float a couple of 3" tabs (check the floater to be sure its open a bit), enjoy your long weekend, pull tabs on return and test your water.

Gotta make it a trifecta. Raise FC and stuff a floater full of pucks. They'll still be partly undissolved when you get back, but that's fine You need a little more CYA and you may lose some if the pool overflows.
