Don't use the dichlor. Just because you have it is a lousy reason. As long as the bag is sealed, it'll keep for years and years. Save it for next season when you need to raise CYA.ok wow. thanks for the info. CYA was high due to me mistakenly adding too much. CYA 115 so am partially draining now. I do have dichlor (from before finding and agreeing with TFPC!) Should i just use it since i have it? as long as I can start with not too high of CYA...... I was hoping to get it down to about 70-80 but i could even drain a little more and get it lower to compensate for using dichlor. and if i understand you correctly....Cal-hypo won't add CYA at all right? and my CH is fine @ 100
I recommend bleach simply because other people will be reading this thread and if they have a pile of cal-hypo leftovers they'll want to use it because you did, but they may not have room for the additional CH if they've been using it all along.ok it was big bucket bought from sams. already opened. but youre right i can save. so would you still recommended bleach vs cal-hypo considering i have room with my CH and Salt???? again i really appreciate your time!!
Yes regular household bleach and liquid chlorine are the same thing as far as active chemical is concerned. The difference between the two is usually the %.Silly question..... are you talking about regular old house hold bleach or liquid chlorine?
Exactly what I did. I had chlorine pucks and dichlor left over from before I found this site; fortunately my CYA never got high because I found this site soon enough before that happened. After enough seasons, I eventually used all my chlorine pucks and dichlor to maintain the correct CYA, and just at the end of last season finally ran out, and I have no intention buying any more of that.Don't use the dichlor. Just because you have it is a lousy reason. As long as the bag is sealed, it'll keep for years and years. Save it for next season when you need to raise CYA.
