    Tricholor puck life span

    Wondering if the Tricholor pucks degrade in the same way liquid chlorine does.....I ask because we are going to be out of town for 5 days and I plan on using 2 or 3 Tricholor pucks in a floater and the pucks I am using have been stored in my garage in Phoenix for 2 years when I went on the TFP method......

    The answer is no, stabilized chlorine does not degrade like hypochlorite solutions do. As long as the pucks remained dry, they can last for years. The decrease in available chlorine would be undetectable.
