I've been succesfully using the BBB method since I opened my pool this spring. My wife and I both work 12 hour shifts, and the nightly addition of chlorine is a bit of a neuisance. I'm wondering about going to the local hardware store and buying a big bucket of stabilized pucks, but I'm concerned that a) they might not keep my FC levels where they need to be, and b) I wonder how much CYA they add to the water (per 200g puck). With weekly backwashing and cleaning, I'm not too concerned about CYA building up too much, but I don't know how much these pucks generally add to the water.
