First year pool owner here. Been following the TFP method all season. I typically check my FC and PH levels at least every other day. All season this year I've been using liquid chlorine, adding on an as needed basis using the pool math app. My question is, what is the best way to keep levels where they should be if you're headed out on vacation for a week or two? I would think maybe using tabs, but wouldn't I run the risk of throwing my CYA levels off by doing that? Thanks.

Many raise the FC to SLAM level and put a few trichor tablets in a floater. Just test CYA when you return and adjust your FC levels.

If a neighbor will be checking on things, leave some pre-measured liquid chlorine jugs out for them to dump in every other day or so. That works too..

I add tabs to the chloranator and do a shock before I leave. So far so good.
