    Can someone enlighten me as to what the heck is in Durachlor 8 oz. tablets/sticks (looks like a cylinder) from Haviland? Have a friend who uses them and swears their cya never goes up. Are they combined with calcium? Downsides from their use? Thanks in advance. Yeah.........I'm tryin' to convert them!

    Re: Durachlor?

    Several different products are sold under the Durachlor name. Of the ones I could find easily, the tablets were trichlor, three of their granular products were dichlor, and the remaining granular was lithium-hypo. There may be others, I didn't do a complete search.

    {EDIT} I found the sticks, they are also trichlor. {/EDIT}

    Here's the msds sheets for Durachlor. The sticks are listed as Trichlor. I'd say he either is incorrect with his readings or he has a lot of water replacement.
