    Going on vacation for a week. Should I add the chlorine pucks to a floater or inside the automatic chlorine feeder?

    Okay, if I am reading Effects of adding correctly, if I add just one puck it will raise my FC 3.0 bring my FC over 8.0? confused sorry... feeling dumb asking for help still. Added pool math screen shots.

    That's what I don't know, how much should I add to last me a week.. so I guess I will add enough to slam and add pucks as well?

    Hi, I'm actually using 12.5% bleach. So bring it up to slam and put in a few pucks, like 4? And this should keep my pool with FC until I get back? Feeling worried I will come back to a messed up pool ! lol

    And how much should I add? I tried to use the effect of adding, but I don't understand it. The pucks are Leslie Pools 99 % Tri-Chlor, 3 inch 8 ounce each. My average liquid added each date is 1 quart 2 cups. Thank you. FC 8.0 CC 0.0 CYA 50 PH 7.8 This is my feeder below.

    Yesterday my FC 4.0 and today FC 4.5 , CC still 0.0 which I'm happy about. I was shooting for max target of FC 8.0 for a CYA of 50. So now I'm wondering did my FC actually go up to 8.0 after adding the amount of bleach per PoolMath? I will add the bleach again now per PoolMath and maybe check...

    Can a huge rain storm drop my CYA from 55/60 to 35?

    Yes, I've been following that chart and saw that it was below. I will rise to 7 and I will do the slam tonight. Thank you

    Can a huge rain storm drop my CYA from 55/60 to 35?

    With the CC at 2.0 do I need to be concerned and think about a slam... am I right if over 2.5 is when I need to do a slam? Thank you

    Okay, lol, so 40 it is. I'm kind of happy about this because I will use less liquid chlorine and when I go on vacation in a few weeks I can use some pucks and not have to worry too much about the rise with the CYA... I think I'm right about this.

    Went away for a day and did not add chlorine yesterday and there was a huge rain storm that gave us a few inches. My CYA really dropped and my CC is up at 2.0 .. should I be okay just adding my chlorine? Pool water looks amazing. FC 2.0 CC 2.0 PH 7.6 TA 90 CYA 35

    IceShadow, your right, I did overshoot. I thought the granular wasn't doing a thing because my husband said it was like in the shed for 2 seasons!!! I do need to add some water, should I do this first and maybe it will bring down the CYA a little?
