Swimming Pool : Liquid chlorine or granular chlorine?
larry: Liquid chlorine or granular chlorine?
andr: It all depends on what you’re trying to do. I use both daily.
naime: Liquid once a week … if I find poop or dead animals then I’ll shock sooner.
scot: Depends, are you in south Florida? 😀
lyn: Liquid because granular can add calcium or CYA to your water, depending on which kind you use, and some companies put metals like copper in it that you don’t want in your water.
jeremy: Good infirmation, I didn’t know that.
brian: exactly…always liquid…i use granular very rarely.
jeremy: I use both. Depends what’s on sale lol.
glen: If my stabilizer level is low, dichlor. If not, liquid.
lyn: That is what I do too. When I opened it up this year, my CYA level was low, so I shocked it with Dichlor several times. Now that my CYA is normal, I’m using liquid chlorine so I don’t have to worry about increasing my CYA.
jef: Yeah I always keep some bags of Dichlor or Trichlor granular on hand for pools with low Cyanuric. I use Cal Hypo only in certain situations if nobody is using the pool right away, etc. The most annoying part of Cal Hypo is the clouding up factor. Liquid is my go-to weapon of choice.
laura: I use tablets. Our pool came w a self chlorinator thing that they said to just fill up w the tablets.
glen: Watch for stabilizer levels to rise if the tablets are trichlor.
laura: Hmmmmm…ok thanks, first time pool owner (besides intex)
glen: Liquid. About a quart or so a day. No pucks. Dichlor only if I need a cya boost.
miranda: I have a 25g pool I use about half a gallon of liquid chlorine in my pool a week to maintain. Pretty simple lol.
glen: I’m exhausted after that process that takes me almost a minute. And the expense! Maybe a dollar a day.
