Is there a way to use chlorine tabs and not have your PH always dropping? I dont have a problem with CYA. My pool seems to lose CYA every winter. The only reason I am considering not using the 3" tabs are for PH stability. I have been using up my extra liquid chlorine that I had from opening the pool this year and have noticed that using liquid my PH is much more stable so I did some research here and it seems that tabs tend to drop the PH. My other concern is I just put a new heat exchanger in and I have heard the tabs are hard on the heater as well as fighting the low PH constantly is a problem. The inside of my old heat exchanger was completely eaten away and I want to avoid that.
The problem with the liquid however is I work all day so its easy to forget. I just realized I havent tested the pool in 3 days or added chlorine. With tabs I never had to worry. Is there a way to use them without the PH dropping all the time?
