    Chlorine Tablets

    Not sure where this post goes but I am out of tablets nd have a good month and a half left of pools season. I live in Iowa so I can continue making trips to the store to get tablets till I dont have any over the winter or get a big bucket. My question I guess is leaving the tablets in the cold garage over the winter going to make the tablets less effective next summer?

    Keep them dry and they'll last forever.

    Wellllllllll most of us here at TFP do not use tablets on a daily bases. They add CYA and that can cause problems as it builds up over time.

    I do have tables aka pucks so I can use them when I got out of town. So long as I keep them dry they seem to last a long time. I only buy a few at time so am not sure how long they last.

    Trichlor that is in a sealed container will keep fresh for a very long time, several years based on personal experience. It is moisture that you want to most avoid with trichlor storage.

    If your testing your water regularly, I would just buy bleach and use it to finish the summer. I also wonder what your CYA level is
