I HAVE AN ABOVE GROUND POOL THAT USES TYPE A FILTER CARTRIDGES. I NOTICE THAT THERE IS A PLACE INSIDE OF THE FILTER WHERE IT SAYS THAT YOU CAN PUT IN 1"CHLORINE TABS. MY QUESTION IS HOW MANY AND HOW LONG DO YOU RUN THE PUMP EACH DAY.
The number of tablets required depends on the size of the pool and the typical usage, among other things. Often times this is an adjustment you have to determine with experience because no two pools are exactly the same from a water chemistry standpoint. However, start with the chemical manufacturer's recommendation, usually on the container of 1" tabs. Also, the pool filter should not be required to run any longer than normal. You need to run it long enought to turn over your water at least once per day, usually around 8 to 12 hours a day.
