Now, we’re about to get a week of rain here in Texas, what can I do or what do you guys do when you have a rainy forecast? Thanks again guys!!

Rain brings a few issues, it's often carrying dirt etc and often a pH of 6 ish. That usually means most of your free chlorine will be used up during or after the rain. Getting more chlorine in the pool either before or soon after can avoid the problems you have just recovered from. That is why I fully endorse a chlorine dosing pump. They keep the chlorine level up at what you set by measuring the level and adjusting it. Manual testing is still required as even dosing unit test probes can play up and require cleaning.
