    What is your source of CYA?

    The last two seasons, I've been using the HTH Conditioner/Stabilizer from Wal-Mart and all has been well. In spite of HTH's website saying my local wal-mart has it, I could neither find it in-store or on their (Wal-Mart's) website.

    So, I wondered what product you folks use for your CYA?

    BioGuard Stabilizer-100 in 6lbs bottle. I get it at my local Patio Pools store. Not the cheapest source of CYA but it is literally 3mi down the road from me and I hate the crowds (all the time) at the Walmart which is 6mi away.

    Locally, you might also try Lowes or Home Depot's pool section. They often times have it.

    I did the evil 3'' tabs from Wal-Mart this year. I just pointed the return towards the surface to counter balance the drop in pH.

    I forgot about Lowe's. Their site says they have it here, so I'll check it out! Thanks for the tips!
