    Left over trichlor pucks after pool closing

    What should I do with half-dissolved left-over trichlor pucks after I closed the pool for the winter?

    Is there any way to safely dispose of them? Should I pack them away and use them next year?

    Thanks!

    Let them dry out and put them in a plastic bag until next year.

    Do you think I could just let them dry and put them back in the bucket with the unused pucks?

    Yes, but you should still put them in a plastic bag.

    Is this because of residual moisture being a concern?
    If it is - the addition of small silica packets inside the bag will help avoid any moisture from causing problems inside the bag.
