    I bought the last 3 bottles yesterday, and there wasn't even any Clorox on the shelf.

    Just pour it in the pool in front of the return stream.

    Have you checked your CYA level lately? You know those 3" tablets add stabilizer along wioth the chlorine. It just builds and builds and builds, and the only realistic way to get rid of it is by draining. So be careful....

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    Re: Bleach

    can you advise a better tab to use?? Lately I've been hammering them up and soaking in a 5gal bucket and pooring in pool.

    Also how do I lower CYA

    Bleach

    It would probably be best for you to read pool school and familiarize yourself with the bbb method, it will save you a ton of money and you will take control of your pool.
    I started bbb this year and my pool is crystal clear and have only had to shock my pool once at opening

    Re: Bleach

    All tabs have things added to them to form a solid, either cya or calcium. Both will build up over time and cause problems if you don't replace some water. Just use bleach. Nothing extra added but a little salt.
