ultimately they should go in a chlorine feeder located at the equipment pad. There are alot of people putting them in the skimmer but that shoots high concentrations of chlorine straight into your equipment reducing the life of equipment. Best to buy an offline chlorinator.

Second those comments. They should either go in a floater or as suggested an inline feeder which is how I do it. The inline feeder in in the return line to the pool so the high concentration is downstream of any equipment.
