    Angry Hi from Barbados

    Hi I have an above ground pool with pump etc. which is 12feet in diameter and about 4.6ft high. I average it has about 5000 gallons of water. I am having an issue with the stabilizer or cyanuric acid. It is very high over 300 on the dip test and so is my chlorine which is at 10. I have bought a very expensive product called Bio-ACTIVE cyanuric acid reducer from my pool guy and put in half the 8oz bag in the skimmer as per instructions. After reading up on it on Amazon it looks like I might have added fuel to the fire at this point and was wondering if anyone else had a similar issue with a happy solution.

    Hello! I have not personally used it, but I hear mixed reviews about it. Can you not drain and then add water in Barbados? That would be a lot cheaper.

    Hi I guess we will have to go that route but wanted to avoid that as we are a water scarce country at the moment and just could not imagine wasting all that water.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Last year we had a number of members try to use the Bioactive and the results were not good. Especially for very high CYA pools. And even if it does work some you will likely need several doses as the few folks who did see a drop in CYA dropped less than 50 ppm.

    Draining about 75% of the pool is the way to go.
