    My tab dissappeared in less than a day

    I usually use bio gaurd 3 step, I went to a store he sold me the surf side brand they last a week blah, blah I put one in at 6:15 yesterday almost no chlorine in the pool. Today I go out at 5pm shut filter off my tab has dissolved chlorine level is through the roof. Ran hose to add a bit more water. Should I keep the pump on to prevent liner damage due to high chlorine? Next time I'll break the tab up and use a quarter of it. It's an intex ultra frame pool.

    off my tab has dissolved chlorine level is through the roof
    We would need to know how high "through the roof" is before advising on whether it is too high for your liner and would need to know your CYA as well.

    I really doubt you're in any trouble but I am just guessing without test results.

    I found that biogaurd's products tend to raise the fc to about 11. Your cya will climb quickly as well.

    The level is based on a pool almost twice the size of yours.

    Any reason you are not just using bleach?
