You can add the increaser directly pool. The chlorine can be added in a couple different ways. Tablets can be used in a floating container or put in the skimmer basket. (I prefer the floating container. Granular chlorine can be added directly in the pool. Always make sure your pH is correct before you add any chlorine or you'll be wasting your money.

It's a good idea to take a sample of your water to local pool store dffor testing. It really helps me out.

Can you add chlorine to a salt water pool without damaging anything?

Yes you can add chlorine to a salt generated pool. But if you are using a Calcium Hypochlorite you must turn the salt generator OFF for 24 hours and premix it (1 pound at a time in a five gallon plastic bucket) then pour it in the pool. You should not have to add any chlorine tablets to the pool, however if you do it is best to put it into a feeder after the cell. However if you have to add chlorine tablets to the pool to supplement either your unit is way undersized or there is a problem with the generator.

To disolve chlorine more gradual into the swimming pool it's better to use chlorine tables because the smaller surface of a tablet in comparison to a powder will make the tablet dissolve more slowly.
