    Going out of town for 3 days. Pucks or shock level?

    My CYA is a little over 30 and I'm leaving Friday afternoon to come back Sunday. I wasn't sure how quickly the pucks dissolved to keep FC where it needs to be.

    I generally cram 4 pucks in my floater standing on edge so there's maximum exposed surface area and they'll keep things fine for about a week in my 16000 gallon pool.

    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!

    I'm a add bleach to shock level guy. Mostly because I have never owned a puck in my life and I don't have a floater and I always have some bleach around.
