I use it in place of what it is used for like pools etc. I use them for my Toilet cause they usually sell the small ones.[In Stores for toilets] These babies work GREAT to keep toilet and tank very clean. Even with the 'toilet version' I still had to clean the bowl once a week. Its been over 2 months now! These Clorox Pool & Spa Tablets are Worth the investment all day!
I'm a new pool owner, because it came with the home that we bought a couple of years ago. My initial enthusiasm turned into frustration because as I learned about proper pool maintenance, the realization sunk in that it was work. Prior to owning a pool, I had always sort of scoffed at my neighbor's penchant for hiring a service to do their pools, and I now realized that this was looking like the best thing to do. The lugging of chlorine, the constant scrubbing, the anxiety over subtle color changes in the water and fighting the persistent "green"? It was consuming both time and money, and had become part of my daily routine.
I bought these Clorox pool tablets on a whim, thinking that the absence of maintenance just HAD to be too good to be true. However, it was worth a shot because I sure didn't want to succumb to the inevitability of hiring a pool service at $75-$100 per month. The result? I drop a tablet (or two, depending on the amount of rainfall and heat) into the floating dispenser, and it does the rest. My war with the "green" stopped completely, as these tablets not only gave us clean, crisp, clear water, but also reduced my pool-wall scrubbing from daily to every other month! My costs went from approximately $40/month (not including the lost time and energy in doing the work or going to the store for the chlorine and shock) to about $40 every SIX months.
These pool tablets didn't just give me an almost maintenance-free pool at low cost and no effort... They gave me back some quality of life.
All I do is keep a tablet in a float and the pool is perfect. I have never had to use any other chemical. I have a small 1000 gph. pump and that is all I need. Also I keep the pump running and tablets in the pool from early spring until late fall then cover the pool and remove the pump for the winter. When I remove the cover in early spring the water is crystal clear and just need a normal clean up.
