    Adding cya sock method.

    When I read toss the sock into the skimmer. Is this the skimmer attached to pump? Do I need to worry about flow restrictions, I'm starting from a 0 CYA... Or do multiple doses with needing so much?

    Re: Adding cya sock method.

    Intex pools many times do not have skimmers. They only have a return port that pushes water into the pool and a suction port that pulls water out of the pool. In this case where you don't have a skimmer like this:

    Then you want to hang the sock in front of the return opening where water is going into the pool. Use a weight outside the pool and a rope/string to keep the sock at the proper height, in front of the return, not resting against the pool liner.

    Wouldn't it be easier and faster to use liquid stabilizer?

    Yes, but much more costly.

    Liquid is easier and quicker, but at about 2-3 times the cost.

    One gallon (128 oz) should have raised your CYA by aprox 36ppm.

    Re: Adding cya sock method.

    I had to raise my CYA up today as well. Not a big issue using the powder. I used a zip tie to close the top of the sock and another zip tie to attach it the the end of the hose shut off. Placed right in front of my strongest return. When the pool is off it hangs without touching the side of the pool. Here's a pic of my set up:
