    Adding CYA to the skimmer

    I just purchased some Conditioner today (CYA) and it stated to... Splash 5lb pouch

    1. Mix half of the amount required in a plastic bucket of warm water. Stir the mixture with a plastic or wooden utensil.
    2. Remove the skimmer basket, set to maximum suction and slowly pour mixture directly into skimmer.
    3. Wait 2-4 hours and repeat above directions with the other half of required amount.
    4. Avoid cleaning the filter for 72 hours to allow for all product to be dissolved into the pool water.

    I followed the instructions, but now I'm half paranoid after reading these comments

    Don't clean your filter for a week or you will wash out your cya. Here is how we recommend adding CYA, Pool School - Recommended Pool Chemicals
