    dry clorine

    Does anyone make chlorine tabs without stabilizer. I Use the BBB method with great success but the sun in the desert is very intense. Sometimes it would be nice to use a floating chlorinater without adding stabilizer. I go through a lot of bleach to keep my chlorine level up. My Cya level is 35.

    Unfortunately they do not exist in a practical manner.

    Please see the following threads:

    You may want to increase your CYA level and/or use a cover to block the sun from your water.

    If CYA is really 35...I mean, really - you tested it, it's been consistent, not from a pool store, not from a strip - then you can use trichlor pucks for a while. Given the Vegas sun, 60 wouldn't be outrageous for CYA.

    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!
