    ....quick question. I have my muriatic acid out in a storage box with my equipment. I wanted to raise my CYA a bit, so I got stabilizer(Clorox 100% CYA granules). Can this be placed in the same box, or should it be kept away from the muriatic acid?

    In Ground Pool roughly 13,500 gallons, autofilled from home soft water.

    Not an expert by any means, but, I'd keep everything away from MA. Stuff eats through metal even through the vent caps.
    12k gal Gunite/Hayward filter C5520BH with quad 33 inch filters. 2.5 hp motor. Pool is on south side, so full sun light. Spill over spa.

    I don't THINK CYA matters cause it doesn't outgas like bleach and MA do.

    I would not keep the MA in any container or enclosure that had equipment containing any metal components. The hydrochloric acid vapors can build up over time and lead to corrosion of metal parts. Don't store MA near bleach/liquid shock either.
