I had a bad experience with my pool builder last fall and in an attempt to make up for it, he gave me a large bucket full of 1 lb CalHypo packets. I am trying to figure out if there is a safe way to use these packets (other than for shocking which if I do my job right will be almost never).
I have seen the videos (and read the label warnings), so I know that it would not be safe to only use part of a packet. I ran the numbers on the Pool Calculator and according to it, a full packet adds 5.7 FC to my pool. I keep my pool in the 40-50 CYA range, so there would rarely be a time that I would want to add 5.7 FC at a time. I usually add about 2 ppm FC per day via bleach.
Can you guys think of any way to use these? Would it be safe to pre-dissolve them in water and bottle that to dispense like Bleach? Sell them on Craig's list? I hate having all that stuff just sitting there so I am hoping you guys will have some ideas.
