I'm new here so the first thing I'd like to say is, Great Site!! Just had my first pool installed on May 2nd and thanks to you guys I think I've learned more about water balance than a lot of people I've spoken to who have had a pool for years. I'll try to turn them all on to your page.
Already have small bucket of 3" pucks I bought before I learned about the BBB method. I thought I would start out with the tabs in floater until the cya level is where I need it then switch over to liquid. How much does a puck raise cya? Read here it should be 30-50ppm, wondering how long it will take. The pool season here in NY is only 3-4 months so I will be draining/refilling some of the water with the start and close of the season.
