Headed out of town in a couple weeks for 9 days and was trying to get a game plan on my chemicals while I’m gone. Just tested pool and my cya is at 20 right now. I was going to add some stabilizer, but I was thinking of using pucks while I was away. Will my cya be out of control by the time I return? I have been using 10% liquid chlorine and between splash out and rain my cya has come down naturally.

Have you been able to keep your FC above 3ppm with a CYA of 20? I would think raising the CYA to at least 30 ppm would be wise.

You can use pucks. Your pool volume is large. I believe most floating dispensers will hold at most 5 pucks. If they all dissolve, it will add 8 ppm FC and 5 ppm CYA. You probably should use two dispensers.

Also, raise your FC to 10 ppm before you leave.

I have been keeping around 30. We just recently had a bunch of rain and a lot of splash out from the kids. I filled a couple times and the others the rain filled it up and drained out.
