    In line Chlorinator

    Switching from salt to pucks this year as our old Intex rusted out from the salt. Am I better to get a floater for the pucks or would an in line chlorinator work better? Does anyone have any pics of any inline chlorinators for pucks they use with an Intex?

    Do to the fact that pucks are almost half stabilizer/CYA we generally do not recommend their use. If not a SWCG, then an automated liquid deliver system is much better like a Liquidator or Stenner pump.

    Agree with Tim, but if you go the puck route (and are extremely diligent about monitoring the CYA and keep the FC correct as the CYA rises), then an in-line is better than a floater IMO.

    Tim and Jb have it covered. Roll, if you don't mind me asking, why not use bleach instead? It's cheaper with way less side effects than tablets. Trust me, you will thank us later on down the road. You will save money on water to refill your pool and chemical costs in general.
