    Best way to chlorinate pool

    I am a new pool owner and wondering what the best way to chlorinate my pool. I have read not to drop pucks into the skimmer because of the acid accumulation. I read about the floaters but i feel that they are not that great either. I do not have a chlorinator hooked up but wonerdering if this is the way to go?

    Hello, and welcome to TFP!

    1. Don't put anything in your skimmer unless your pump runs 24/7/365.
    2. The accumulation has to do with CYA, Cyanuric Acid. Once that gets high, you will be fighting a losing battle.
    3. The best ways to chlorinate are by using liquid chlorine (bleach) or a salt water chlorine generator.

    I recommend jumping into Pool School at the top right of this page, then ask questions as they pop up. You are on your way to a trouble free pool!
