    Liquid CL and 3 inch pucks for chlorination

    Looking at everyone's response, it's best to use Liquid Cl alone. Reason I asked about the above scenario is I purchased the two 5 gallon buckets of the 3 inch pucsk, from Sam's Club when it was on sale. It's a headache to go return so I was thinking about just using it along with liquid CL...

    Liquid CL and 3 inch pucks for chlorination

    Hello Experts, I wanted to know if we can use Liquid CL/bleach along with 3 inch pucks same time. Here is the scenario: Use liquid CL to get the water clear. Keep the FC level at the target number after SLAM is done. Than use 3 inch pucks to continue to chlorinate the pool water. I know...

    It's the picture. From closer you can see the bottom of the pool. You have to be afraid of chlorine. Ruined some of my clothes😂

    This is what I found online Risks of Over-Chlorination While slightly higher-than-normal levels of chlorine in your pool are harmless, exposure to an over-chlorinated pool can have adverse effects on your health and well-being. Excess chlorine can alter the pH level of the water in the pool...

    Going to stop using the PUCKS and single packaged shock powder.. .Only use liquid chlorine or bleach.. Found a store near me Ocean state job lot that sells 1 gallon for $3. You are right about the low FC compare to CYA. I just added more chlorine to raise it. I still see white stuff in some...

    @mknauss here are my numbers during the SLAM FC 10.5 Ch 225ppm CYA 40 Water still little cloudy. I can see the drain at the deep end. Should I add chemical to increase my CH?

    During SLAM process, how often should backwash my DE filter? And when do backwash do I add more DE(80%) during SLAM? I am also running the robot around 3 to 4 times a day. I believe each robot cycle runs for about 2 hours. Is brushing still ncessary?

    Got it. I picked up two 5 gallon container from my pool store. Will start measuring the water for FC. I do have lot of landscaping around one side of my pool, as well as a sand box for my toddler to play in. Can the vegetation and sand have anything to do with lowering my CL levels? None...

    Can I use this instead of liquid chlorine for shock? Pour in about three packs and brush the walls and floor. Keep the pump running until pool gets clear. Will that work?

    I am relying on pucks for chlorine. CYA is from today. Water is still cloudy. Before water looked blueish and cloudy. It started getting. Lear after I added calcium chloride to Increase the CH numbers and sodium Carbonate to Increase TA. What should I do?

    Numbers are from today evening. What am I doing wrong? I had dumped 5 gallon liquid chlorine and also use 3 inch pucks to chlorinate. My CH and TA are low as well. Do I need to do the SLAM process or can I add something specific? Cl 1 Ph7.2 FC 1 5 ppm Cc 1 ppm Ch 175 TA 70 CYA 30

    I had the pros come out today and do the pressure test the return lines. Found a leak in waterfall line. So i am down to one return line at the shallow end of the pool. I did some online line research and found the leak sealing product (below is the link). Has anyone used this and does it...
