Just a general question regarding my inline chlorinator. I apologize for the lack of details but I am at work and it's my first pool so I don't know all the equipment yet. I was wondering how many 3in chlorine tablets you are suppose to put in the chlorinator? Is there a normal amount? Also, if I only run my filter 6-8hrs a day -does that mean no chlorine is going into my pool when the filter is off? I understand that it is widely recommended on here to use bleach and not the 3in tablets and I will probably switch but for the time being I have started with the tablets. I had just 1 tablet in and the strip test looked like there was no chlorine (I have a k-2006 kit on the way). I shocked the pool and it looked normal after that and now I have 3 tablets in the chlorinator but was just trying to figure out how it usually works. On top of the amount of tablets, I also have the chlorinator set to "6" on the knob it has. I have a vinyl inground pool. Hayward 35sq ft filter and hayward (maybe a CL200?) chlorinator. Thanks!
