    Instant liquid chlorine?

    http://www.intheswim.com/shopping/moreI ... nfoID=2594

    Curious, does this contain stabilizer like the pucks?

    It contains cal-hypo, so no stabilizer and instead calcium.

    It's calcium hypochlorite (cal hypo). It does not add CYA but adds a good bit of calcium....something you probably don't want. It will not dissolve quite as easily as advertised, either.

    Hmmm. Does it matter if it's an above ground pool?

    I'm intrigued by this stuff. I work in a small town and live in the middle of the country. The thought of having this delivered to my door sounds oh-so-appealing. Instead of buying the local stores out, or having to make an hour long round-trip special trip when they are out. Which happens a lot in the summer.

    P.S. You guys are FAST with your responses

    Orrrr I wonder if it would be okay to keep this stuff on hand for when the local stores are low or out of bleach?

    It's fine for what it is, but the calcium can build up and cause issues with scaling. You'd need to know what you have in your fill water and where you are with CH now and then keep an eye on it.

    Also, if considering this you might as well get regular cal-hypo, which is less expensive and more widely available.

    If you drain your pool every winter, the buildup of calcium might not be a big deal to you. You'll just have to watch your TA and pH closer.

    You might be a candidate for a SWCG too if buying products is a hassle. You'll just have to keep muriatic acid on hand.
