    How to Dispose of or neutralize Wet Chlorine tablets?

    I am in a quandry. Our bucket of 3 inch chlorine tablets got wet, and we don't know what to do. As soon as the lid is opened up completely, a lot of fumes escape. How do we neutralize or dispose of the tablets? Anyone we should call?

    Thanks.

    If they're not a clump, I'd wear rubber gloves and safety glasses and lay them out to dry on a surface they won't harm and allow them to dry completely. Then you could dry out the bucket and put them back in.

    You can stop SLAMing your pool when you pass the OCLT (You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & You have .5ppm CC's or less) & your water is clear.
