I am trying to balance my pool as well as keeping the chlorine that I have IN the pool. Today I added CYA...a.k.a stabilizer. being that I did not have a way to hang it off in the jets of the return...I figured I would just sit it in a bucket and let it dissolve over a week ...well that would give the weather time to suck the chlorine out.
Long sorry short, I put 4lb of CYA in a home depot bucket got my drill and put a paint mixing paddle on it. I was able to dissolve 7 lbs of CYA in a matter of 45 min.
Just thought I would share this finding
