Ok.. this is my second year on BBB.. well sort of.
I am also using BioGuard SmartSticks (a 30lb pail was given to me as a gift when we moved into our home). I am now out of the SmartSticks. I always kept two in each skimmers to get my CYA up. Well, it hasn't really worked because my CYA is only about 10-20 (liner was replaced last year).
So, my options are:
#1 Get another bucket of SmartSticks and continue what I am doing
#2 Save some money and go with sticks from Doheny's
#3 Only use Clorox and buy some CYA and introduce via the sock method
I am guessing most of you will recommend #3?
My only concern is I can't always check the FC everyday. Using the SmartSticks buys me some time.
