As I said in the title, I'm closing my pool, not using a cover and wondering about keeping some chlorine in the pool over the winter. My CYA is low (less than 30) so I was thinking of using a floater and pucks, which would also help keep the ph down (still a problem) and raise the CYA some. Is using a floater over the winter ok?
A somewhat related question...
My pool frog froze and broke last winter. I wasn't using it anyway except on vacation so no big deal, except I still have 3 of those (expensive) frog chlorine pacs in the garage and no frog to use them in. The floater and a couple of pucks did the job for vacations this past summer. Since just a handful of pucks aren't available at the store right now, can I just cut open those frog pacs and put them in the floater? Anyone ever done this? Just thinking about taking a hacksaw and loping off the top of it unless someone has a better suggestion?
Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions!
