    3" Pucks Dissolving Slowly

    14,500 gallon pool with ILC that uses 3" pucks. I'm adding about 1lb. of shock every 3-4 days. My CYA is at 35, Ph at 7.6, and TA at 110. My pool is in direct sunlight about 80% of the day and we've had quite a bit of rain for the past 2 weeks. The past week I have only went through one puck running the pump 24 hours. I pretty sure I should be burning through a puck every 2-3 days. Before that, I was burning through 2 pucks per week. Any suggestions?

    I would re-read the POOL SCHOOL - running long term with pucks will sky rocket your CYA.

    As for dissolving so slowly...I can't really comment.

    LOL, Yeah, lose the pucks and learn to use the BBB method touted here!
    You'll save a ton of money and most likely have a much nicer water quality.
    Do you have a good pool test? Have you read the Pool School articles here to learn all about pool water maintenance?
    I find it very satisfying to be in charge of my own pool quality, as apparently I'm pickier and want better water than what most pool stores promote.
