I always pour my bleach directly into the skimmer. Can I add a TriChlor puck to my skimmer too?
I just did an Ascorbic Acid treatment last night because of pool stains. I'm unable to hold any FC yet, and my CYA is still very low. I'm unsure if I can put in a puck and still pour bleach in. (I was hoping the puck would help hold a little chlorine while I'm gone tomorrow.) Do I have to remove the puck before pouring in bleach? (I have no idea how slowly these things are used up.)
FC - not holding
CC - 0
ALK - 160
PH - 7.0
CYA - 20 or so...
Temp - 70 (Brrr)
Now I'm just waiting for my CYA to dissolve, though I didn't add a lot, and keeping a close eye on the chlorine waiting for it to hold. I guess I'm on the right track here. I'll retest the CYA in a day or two I guess. Advice appreciated.
