    Brand of Cyanuric Acid?

    When it comes to stabilizer/conditioner/CA, are there particular brands to look for or stay away from? I'm guessing that any brand would do as long as it states that it's 100% CA.

    We just had our pool installed so I'm still learning.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    They are all going to have some filler. As long as it is more than 90% CYA it should be fine.

    I'd be inclined to recommend the HTH brand of CYA. It's a finer granule than most types I've used and dissolves more quickly as a result. Just make sure the sock you put it in has a tight weave so it doesn't leak out. I found mine at Home Depot pool products section. 97% I believe.
