    Chlorination Combination Question

    Since joining our community of Pool Owners/Maintainers I've paid a great deal more amount of attention to what happens in my pool. I thank everyone for that. I started this year off with new chemicals (I still have yet to cross over to the BBB side) and I was wondering about their 'compatibility.' I'm using 3" Trichlor tabs and Di-Chlor Powered shock. Is there anything I should be aware of with this combination? Is there a better combo I should be looking for?

    Looking forward to your comments as always,

    Patrick

    You can use them in combination. BUT, both of those add CYA to your pool. With continued use, you are going to end up with CYA so high that the FC can't be brought up high enough to be effective.

    We typically recommend standard bleach (not outdoor, scented, etc.) for use for chlorination, or one of the automated methods such as salt water chlorine generation.

    I think the word you're looking for is "ascending"
