We use a chlorine feeder and 3" tabs, I have 2 cartridges and enough tabs to get me by for the first 6 weeks.

Woodman's or the dollar store for 1 gallon bleaches. Just the plain old non scented, non concentrated sodium hypochlorite. Been using it for over a decade now and it doesn't add any dissolved solids to your water like the pucks do.

Yup, all the fucking scum bags have bought them up and price gouging on eBay and OfferUp. My local Sams Club shows in stock. I’ll run and check. If they have some I’ll text you DEEZUZ DEEZUZ

Oh, and it doesn't over saturate your pool with cyanuric acid (stabilizer) like the pucks do.

Bleach is actually better to use. But it’s hard to maintain a good level in my experience

That’s the main thing. Too much stabilizer and your chlorine doesn’t do it’s job.

I picked some up at Sam's last night, then shot over to The Great Escape to grab shock and the chlorinating cartridges I use. They only had a few 10lb buckets in stock and the guy in there said once his stock is gone they have no clue when they will get more. I asked if the same applied to shock, he said they get it from the same place so probably. So I grabbed 2 cases of shock instead of 1.

All depends on the size/gallons, usage and weather, my pool is 24" round and 54" deep. In the past when I only used 2 chlorine floaters, a 45lb bucket of 3" tabs usually got me thru the summer. Last year with the new pool, I tried a chlorine and mineral sanitizing system. I like it a lot, but I also like to keep my chlorine on the higher but still safe side. So I used one chlorine floater as well and might have used 15lbs of 3" tabs.
