    Using Chlorine to boost (Trichlor)

    Do I understand from a posting (which I can't find now) that you can use granular chlorine to boost FC even if you are using a SWG?

    Yes, you can still add extra chlorine from other sources even if you are using a SWG. Keep in mind that granular chlorine typically also has either CYA or CH in it and adding too much of either of those will cause problems in the long run. The best source of chlorine other than a SWG is liquid chlorine, also known as common household bleach. It doesn't add anything that you don't want in the pool.
