I went through TFP over the last few years and have gained a lot of knowledge of pool chemicals and what works and what doesn't. For the winter time I do use pucks to keep the pool clean. Yes it does add CYA, but if monitored, you can do a partial drain to bring the CYA down to a reasonable level (40-60ppm). It usually costs me 20-30 bucks to refill half the pool if I go that route. Which is not much if you think how many gallons of liquid chlorine you would've used compared to using 2 dollar pucks. You can still use pucks when you think you don't want to spend too much time keeping tabs of the chlorine level. I have not used a drop of liquid chlorine in the last 5 months. Lugging around and storing the store bought chlorine also takes a lot of effort and space. When there's a sale of liquid chlorine I'll get 20-30 jugs. But the stuff loses potency if you store it for too long. I'm still a big proponent for TFP's BBB method though.
I've seen 50lb pucks for around 85 locally. But I'm not saying this is a bad deal.
That said, the warmer season is here and I need to go back to the liquid chlorine routine. Any deals on that?

|jmr||You can make the VMInnovations deal a bit better by adding the SPLASH promo code, but you'll have to buy a bit more. Code is good for $15 off $150, $30 off $300, or $50 off $450.|

|D_Nyholm||With all the extra CYA you are going to be adding to your pool with these pucks, you will never be able to maintain your pool correctly. Check our trouble free pool for the BBB method and realize that pucks are rarely a good thing to use in your pool.|

Plus costco is rock solid on shipping; the other deal posted above requires FB and I have bought from vminnovations before and had slow shipping. Kind of a wash.
