    Re: Chlorine pucks / tabs without stabilizer / CYA

    Does anyone know if they ever made an chlorine pucks for a chlorinator? I don't want to use them due to some posters talking about how all of them increase your CYA.

    Would a good alternative (and probably cheaper) be to just pour in about some liquid bleach from walmart every night for the 15' above ground I am considering buying?

    I was trying to figure it out in pool math section but I think that section only shows you how to get to a 'target' number if you have a problem. Would anyone know how many oz daily or every 2 days to add of bleach to a 5500 gal above ground pool. Thanks all!
    Location: Long Island, NY
    Gallons: 3500 Gallons
    Pool: Intex 14'x42" Round Metal Frame
    Filter: 1000 GPH Cartridge Filter (Came with pool)
    Using Intex Saltwater Generator

    We think so, because it enables you to have tight reigns on your water balance. There are other things to control....Parameters like Cya (stabilizer). As for the dose, and other things you'll need to look at, there are tools like Pool Math and Information in Pool School.
