Thread: Using Chlorine tabs in a saltwater pool?

    Using Chlorine tabs in a saltwater pool?

    I have a chlorine generator that is not working and needs to repaired/replaced. Is it okay to use chlorine tabs temporarily until I get the generator fixed?

    Bleach is better because it contains no CYA...what is your CYA level?

    If CYA is Cyanuric Acid level it is around 30 ppm. How much bleach should I use for a 9000 gallon above ground pool.

    With CYA at 30 now, using tabs for a couple of weeks is just fine.
