    Not sure what type of chlorine to put into..........

    I ahve a little white floating "thing" that I received with my cover I bought- part of a closing kit. It has holes in it and disperses chlorine over time (I guess). What do I need to put in the floating thing that goes under my cover when I close it??

    Thanks

    For closing we recommend only using bleach/liquid chlorine and if you want extra insurance protection, then use a polyquat60 algaecide. See: http://www.troublefreepool.com/pool-...in_ground_pool Most the stuff in "pool closing kits" are a waste of money and sometimes can do damage.

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.
