Crazy Chlorine Puck Question / Stenner pump feeder / BBB

Ok I use the BBB method. Working great for years... I use 2 stenner pumps on timers feeding liquid chlorine and acid.

What would happen if I fill a big tub of chlorine pucks with water, and stick the feed hose in connected to my stenner pump?

Insane? Blow up? Death? Or the opposite? Would the CYA stay on the top?

Yeah... no.

What you will get is a bucket of highly acidic chlorine solution. Don't go anywhere near it if you value your eyes or nose. The acidic water will quickly burn off the chlorine in to the air so you will be left with highly acidic liquid CYA. I can only imagine how your stenner hoses will react with that.

As for where the CYA will be: since it is all part of the trichlor molecule it will be exactly where the chlorine is until the chlorine dissipates in to the air.

That's calcium hypochlorite, not trichlor. Trichlor doesn't do that, unless you decided to mix it with cal-hypo that is.

Still a really bad idea though.
