3 8oz pucks can only add 37ppm of chlorine. most of us use 1 to 2 ppm per day when the pool is covered. so in 60 days, you would need 60 to 120 ppm to maintain. this would also effect your cya a lot .
i’m sure others on this forum are way more knowledgeable than me, but i woul just close it down and deal with it when i got back.
at 4500 gallons, how much is a complete water change?
