You let your chlorine drop to -0- while you were away. Now you have a algae bloom.

Continue to keep your chlorine levels high, brush a LOT, and keep your filter on 24/7. The fact that it is blue is a good sign. You are 1/2 home. DO NOT let your chlorine drop during this process of you start again from scratch.

If you keep your chlorine up and keep filtering...5-7 days.
