    Bioguard SILK STICKS

    Is there something else I can put into the skimmer that will work just as well but cost less?

    Welcome to TFP dmcavoy06

    We don't recommend the exclusive use of sticks or pucks here at TFP because they are always adding other chemicals to the water.

    You can see what we do use here Recommended Pool Chemicals.

    I would also like to recommend to you, the ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry.

    We take a hands on approach here at TFP when it comes to dosing our pools, unless a SWG is in use, but still, the water is being tested daily even with a SWG.

    If you are more interested in not having to dose your pool daily, I would suggest you look into a SWG.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Sorry, but any dry form of chlorine is going to add some unwanted byproducts - calcium or cyanuric acid. This article goes into greater detail.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
