Back 3 years ago when my pool was put in a got a whole bunch of chemicals from my builder. I gave the tabs to my friend but just found a 25lb bucket of DiChlor in there. Was thinking about selling it since I use liquid chlorine only but I could use it to boost my CYA if needed, correct? If so where is the calculation for that? I don't see it on pool math, I only see DiChlor for adding chlorine to pool.

Go to PoolMath, fill in the size of your pool, then go down to the bottom where it has the "effect of adding chemicals section" You can calculate how X ounces of dichlor will affect pool chemistry.

Thanks this is what I was looking for. After some evap and water add I'm down a bit on CYA (approx 35) and I need to add chlorine so about a lb of DiChlor will get me to where I want to be all around. Thanks!

Hey so quick question. There is a cup in the DiChlor but those OZ are fluid OZ correct, not weight OZ. I struggle to figure out how much stuff weighs without a scale.
