    Suplement FC w/ bleach

    Hey:

    I'm using Trichlor tabs because there are some left and my CYA is still so low. The FC seems to be holding around 2 using them. I'd like my FC a little higher. Is it OK to supplement with bleach to get my numbers up to 3 while I'm waiting for my CYA to go up. I am adding CYA slowly till I get to bout 40-50 ppm.

    Thank you.

    Yes.

    It's not just okay, it's recommended! You need to maintain FC all the time, by whatever means.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Just don't mix the two! For example, if you are using pucks in the strainer basket, don't add the bleach there as well, pour it in front of a return jet instead.

    Thank you, no, I wasn't going to mix them and yes, we have a puck in the skimmer basket and I was going to pour bleach in front of the return jet at 7:16 EST. That's one hour before sunset here.
