Anyone here, especially Chemgeek that could tell me the pro's and con's of using either of these 2 products:
1. http://oreqcorp.com/treatment/algaecides/index.asp ---the granular form, http://www.oreqcorp.com/msds/english/PD ... AECURE.pdf --here's a MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET
This one is the Trichlor.
2. http://oreqcorp.com/treatment/sanitizers/index.asp ---the granular form as well, http://www.oreqcorp.com/msds/english/PD ... ANULAR.pdf ---here's a MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET
This one is the Dichlor
I was told to use the granular Trichlor over the Dichlor for the purposes below:
My main question is, is using either of these products better than using liquid chlorine alone for maintenance? I understand that using the granular forms also adds some cyanuric to the pool, but any idea how much in 1lb of the granular gets added to the pool?
I'm trying to determine if using the granular for 1 month (using 1 or 2lbs a month per pool in the Winter/Fall... and 4lbs a month in the Summer, in San Diego), and then, using liquid chlorine for 2 months and repeating that cycle is a good way of maintaing pools? Hopefully that makes sense, any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
