    Pure Sodium hypochlorite tablets?

    Does anyone know of a source for Pure Chlorine tablets in any percentage? Sound like a good idea but I have not been able to find them anywhere.

    There are none sorry. Chlorine in dry form needs a binder. CYA and calcium are the two most common binders. Lithium is used too, but it is very expensive.

    There is no such thing.
    Sodium Hypochlorite is a liquid.

    The only solid forms of chlorine are:
    trichlor and dichlor which are acidic and add CYA
    cal-hypo which adds calcium
    and lithium-hypo that is very expensive:

    Well, I knew it was a long shot. The link to the types of chlorine is what I was looking for. Thanks again.

    Chlorine in its pure form is a gas. Sodium hypochlorite is only in liquid form. Any dry form of chlorine adds CYA or calcium to the pool.
