I read in a different post, several recommendations to use tri-chlor pucks, for vacations. I have done great just using bleach since finding this forum, but my situation is unusual, and wondered -
My wife and I live 2 hours from where we work. We stay in a place there during the week and come home on weekends. Our business isn't a 9-5 m-f thing so often we stay home for 4-5 days then stay at work for 8-12 days. We seldom know ahead of time if a work week will be 4 days or 14 - we just kinda play it by ear.
This wreaks havoc with my pool maintinance, often times I spend 2-3 days correcting a problem caused by being gone too long and not shocking often enough.
Would tri-chlor pucks be recommended in this situation?
