My pump is dead and not being replaced until Monday. So I have 3 days of having to manually chlorinate and mix the pool. So how high should I bring up my FC and do I just brush a lot? Days are getting hot here so I am worried about FC loss but my CYA is at 80 so I think I will be ok.

You'll be fine unless you are on the edge of an Algae bloom or into one already. Your water shouldn't be warm yet, but keep the FC up for at least 70 Cya (non salt pool) and you should be fine. As long as you brush, brush, brush everyday, and more if you can. :lol:

No. I'm good. Well above my target FC. It's a salt pool so my CYA is 80. Pool water is in the 70s already. So I guess I'll just bump the FC up a bit and brush. Thanks.
