Adding chorine after adding stabilizer. I use tablets in the skimmer.

We don't recommend the routine use of chlorine pucks. They cause too much rise in CYA stabilizer, which means your free chlorine requirements increase also.

Have you considered using liquid chlorine (or plain, unscented household bleach, NOT Clorox brand)? You can find 10% liquid chlorine in the pool section of Walmart.

Also it is not recommended to put Trichlor tablets in the skimmer. Very acidic and can cause equipment damage.
