    CYA Question

    I finally got my water high enough to run the filter. I tied my sock full of CYA near the return. Being that I just got the pump running, I don't want to run it overnight in case there is a problem. Calling for storms tomorrow. Is it safe to leave the sock hanging without the pump running? It's an intex ultra frame. Only a small portion of the sock hits against the liner.

    Chadrobertc@gmail is cyanuric acid. I wouldn't leave it leaning against any surface, even with the pump on.

    Went out and made something to hang it on. Still want to make sure it's okay without the pump on.

    I must admit, this is my first time using the CYA, even though I've been using the TFP method a few years. In my 18' pool, I just used powdered shock until I reached my target,due to the smaller pool size. New things make me nervous, ha ha.

    A pic of how I used my brush to hang the sock: (it's in there good, shouldn't fall)

    Excellent idea! Very ingenious. Two

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
