First off, no comments about BBB or Liquid Chlorine... I know Trichlor adds CYA but I need that right now - my CYA is low as this is a brand new pool.
ANYWAYS, how does this Rainbow thing work? I read the manual and it was no help. Fundamentally, what I'm trying to get my hands around is the flow of water... Water flows in and fills up the canister, right? So the trichlor tabs essentially just soak in water and slowly dissolve over time.
But is the rate at which this dissolved Trichlor gets into the water affected by the size of the puck and how quickly it dissolves in water and can squeeze out some kind of injection tube back into the system/pool?
Is the rate at which this dissolved Trichlor gets into the water defined by the meter setting on the Rainbow unit. I would think this is how it works, but I can't seem to get my hands around this system..
My concern is how quickly will I use up 10 pucks, and also is like I have 10 pucks of Trichlor in my pool? Or does it slowly release say 1/10 of the pucks over a 24-hour period???
Thanks in advance!
