    Pool Cover and chlorine tablets

    Please can anyone tell me if they have seen any 8 foot pool covers and chlorine tablets on the high street?
    Our pool has arrived earlier than expected and we cant really use it until we have the cover and water treatments so wanting to pick them up today.
    I know argos has a water treatment pack but it is £35 I've seen chlorine tablets with dispenser for around £10 on ebay so don't really want to spend more than that.
    Thanks in advance

    I had the same problem trying to find some chlorine off the high street, in the end i just bought the stuff from argos... Tried the chlorine dispensers before but it didnt work as well as direct chemicals...

    thanks for your reply, in what way did you mean the tablets dont work as well? Did the water not really stay that fresh?

    last year B&Q did a pool chemicals set with 3 containers of chlorine, anti algae and ph adjustment ganules plus tester etc included. I have not looked this year but it was own brand so assume they should.

    to be honest tap water should last OK for approx 2 days before going off (unless you have kids brings mud and grass into the water.) It would be a shame to miss the hot weather (we only have another day or so) for the sake of missing chemicals.

    Sorry for the delay in replying, I found that the tablets did not produce a high enough level of cleaning, I used dipsticks to check the chlorine levels on a nightly basis and the tablets were far weaker than diluted chlorine. One benefit of having tablets is its safer to have around the home, also you cant give the wrong dose of chlorine like i did the first time :-D

    Thanks for your replies, rep added. Panic over as I came across a reduced water treatment kit in homebase! Didnt manage to get a cover though I have ordered one from wilko for £3.99
    Happy days!
