I agree on the pucks! good call. I am building this myself. It's been a a ton of work, but I am literally saving thousands! Plus I like doing things on my own. The feeling of pride and accomplishment is unparalleled!If your CYA is 20 you can use Pucks for now, looks like you have a new deck being built in the back? Are you doing it or having someone do it?
Agreed and lesson learned! Always learning from this awesome community.Anyone else in the same situation of needing to add both CYA and Chlorine... as liquid chlorine is in short supply nationally, why not consider dichlor or tricolor - powder or pucks - instead of adding CYA and chlorine separately? Pool math will tell you how much you need to add to get your CYA correct, and hey, free chlorine!
That is what our has as well. At least Walmart stores the stuff indoors. Yes I bought it and am using it up first. Preliminary measurements are showing its okay so far... Add a little more than normal...My wife was at Walmart the other day and I told her to look in the pool section to see if they had liquid chlorine, which they did. So she brought home 5 jugs....... and the date code is 19 353! So its already 92 days old. :-(
