    Weight of 3" Tri-chor Tab

    Sorry guys, I know I have seen somebody state the weight of 3" Tri-chlor Tabs and I even think what it adds in FC and CYA, but I can't find where the heck I wrote it down. Does anybody know the estimated weight? I was guessin' 6oz. in the pool calculator.
    With a search for Tri-Chlor or trichlor I get a bazillion post that don't help me one bit.

    The 3" Tri-Chlor tablet should weight about 7oz. I looked at a few manufactures and that is what they list as the weight of one tab.

    Thanks ... I was close, but I like to be dead on. That's why I use the BBB Method.

    forgot to add -
    One tab in your 14600 gal pool would:
    raise FC by 3.3, lower PH by 0.18 and raise CYA by 2.

    I just weighed a 3" HTH Brand and it was 7.1 oz . I believe they can range between 6 - 8 oz depending on the brand.

    Yep, mine are HTH also. I don't have a scale to do my own measurement. Optica is dead on wit the numbers for my pool, it's what I get using the pool calculator. So with a couple of Tri-chlor tabs and I will get my CYA back closer to 50, sweet.
