    Trichloroethane 3in

    http://

    Have some of these left over and want to use to raise CYA. Not sure how to determine how much each tab will raise CYA? Also, can I place in skimmer basket?
    34x18 doughboy (desert springs) above ground. Has deep end, but don't know depth yet. Pool came with house (first season). 22in sand filter (250lbs sand)with 1.5hp two speed pump. Pentair MiniMax ch 200m heater.
    440 gallon Emerald spa. Currently a 3.6hp, 2 speed, 46y, 240volts motor. Changing to a 3hp, 2 speed, 56y, 240volt motor.

    That is Trichlor. Weigh a tablet (likely about 8oz) and use PoolMath at the bottom to see what it will add to your pool.

    You should not put them in the skimmer unless you are running the pump 24/7, which is a waste of electricity. Best to get a floater.

    I have been running pump 24/7 on low speed. This is not necessary?

    Use the Effects of Adding Chemicals section.

    Usually 4-6 hours of pump run time is plenty. Read: Determine Pump Run Time
