    MA should be in the Paint dept., look for the 31% strength - not low fumes or anything fancy. My local lowes does not carry pool stuff (no CYA) but most do. Good luck.

    My Lowes (we have many in crowded NJ) does carry pool stuff, but not CYA. I get that on Amazon.

    Our lowes carries CYA in their (small) pool section. It is chlorox pool brand.

    As Pool Tool mentioned, there are a couple of different strengths of MA. The "green" (low fume) stuff has a lower concentration (at same price). You can use it, but you have to adjust your pool math calculations for the needed amount. The "Jasco" brand carried by our lowes has a regular and "green" version, neither say the actual concentration on the label (I had to look it up online), so just be aware of what concentration you are getting.
    28 ft round ABG with ~6ft deep end, approx. 20,000 gal, 2 spd 2 HP pump, sand filter

    Ok, will do. Thanks for the info. I will buy some tonight, and make sure I know the strength before using it.

    Re: Cyanuric Acid and Muriatic Acid

    I see you're in Tuttle. Go to Atwoods in Norman. They usually are a bit cheaper than Lowe's on the muriatic acid and stabilizer. At least the Atwoods here in Shawnee is. Last week I picked up acid for $2.99 a gal there and the stabilizer was right around $20 for 5.5lbs $4-5 cheaper than our Lowe's.

    24'x52" Artesian w/ Portifino liner - Hayward 1hp powerflo matrix w/24" sand filter - AquaTrol RJ SWG. Solar heating to come. -
