Sorry if this is redundant, I am having problems where it appears my account freezes when I post.
In order to Wean myself off of Pucks, I am not sure how to safely remove the partially eroded pucks and dispose of the liquid in the bottom of the chlorinator. They seem to be eroding very slow with water around 82 degrees. Can I leave the pucks in there or will that become caustic? I assume if I turn on the chlorinator with no pucks, it will flush the tank. I have been dumping a couple inches of water and refilling but CYA is still over 100 (off the chart on TF-100) 107 on ColorQ, I have not added pucks for maybe 10 days and my chlorine is 3-4 and PH at 7.4
Now for BBB, to add bleach is it best to just pour it in or should I mix in a bucket, I seen both, my concern is backsplash reaching over a high pool wall with a 'bucket'
TF test kit, I got a little confused between Red and Pink, for ex alkalinity at 10 drops the drop turns pink in suspension, but it takes 13 drops to turn the whole solution pinkish. Would the reading be 100 or 130? My ColorQ puts it at 107. I am guessing it would be 130 or would it be 120 since the 12'th drop was the last drop before turning pink if we consider pink red?
