    Clor MorŽ Septic Tab

    Does anyone have any experience with Clor MorŽ Septic Tabs?

    Are they a substitute for standard 3" pucks but do not contain the CYA?

    They are calcium hypochlorite tabs that will add calcium to your pool water. Also, cal-hypo typically can not be manufactured as tablets without a special binder material. It usually leaves a very sticky and gooey residue when all of the cal-hypo dissolves.

    You really can't use these as a trichlor puck replacement as the left over binder will clog the tubing on an inline feeder. Putting them in a float will leave residue all over your pool.

    Cal Hypo tablets are for septic use and should not be used in pools......period (For emphasis. just repeating what JN has already said)

    Have a birthday pool party for ten 1st graders and you'd probably be better off swimming in your septic tank

    Also... do not put cal hypo based tablets in the same container or a container that was used for trichlor tablets, including an in-line chlorinator. The results could be explosive. Literally.
