Do I not need the floaty thing with the chlorine tabs in it? Someone said it adds CYA. Other than that is there a reason to have it? I check chlorine levels daily and add liquid 12.5% as needed.

No, you dont need to use pucks and as you noted they add CYA.

If you are going to use pucks, the floating dispenser is recommended vs a skimmer, since they are acidic and you dont want that acidic water going directly into your equipment from your skimmer.

Clean it out and store it. You can use it and the tabs when you are out of town for several days if your CYA is not already too high.
