    CYA Brand Names

    I've noticed a wide disparity in prices of "stabilizer" (CYA of course) based on the brand name. Is on name better than another? I see GLB, OMNI, Protech, etc. with the latter being significantly more expensive than others. Is there some advantage to the more expensive brand or are they just greedy? I could see paying more for one if it was more pure or something, but I don't see how.

    Any thoughts?

    If it says "100% cyanuric acid", then one should be no better than another.

    The liquid versions are more expensive than the powdered versions because of convenience (they dissolve faster).

    I've seen various strength's.. I mistakenly bought 50% once. Ooops.
    I've seen 93%, 94.7%, etc. just read the label, brandname shouldn't matter.
