All is great with my pool now. The black swamp is now crystal clear. the ph is spot, chlorine levels (avail, etc.) are all on spec... all is happy happy.
The question I have is what the heck was I thinking buying those "tablet" "puck" type things??? (and the float that they go in)? Everything I read about them (here and other places) is that "type" of chlorine is bad because of CYA issues, etc. In my case, I don't understand the point of it at all.
My avail. chlorine will go to zero (0) with the puck... the only way to get my avail. chlorine to where it needs to be is to add liquid chlorine.
Ok. Make fun of me... what's the deal?
