    conditioner /stabalizer

    my above ground pool is looking good but lacks sparkle also is there a substitute for stabalizer /conditioner that I can add to conserve the clorine from the sun?
    Also where can I buy more testing tubes of chemicals for my Taylor kit.?

    There is no substitute for stabilizer. It's Cyanuric Acid.

    Before you go adding stabilizer you need to post a full set of test results. We'll help you determine how much you need, if any.

    Click the Tftestkits link in my sig for a place to order the Taylor reagent refills.

    I agree with Dave, Get a full set of numbers first. My advise for "sparkle" is to add borates to the pool. See how in the Pool School.
    It made a big difference in mine.

    We get 'sparkle' by adding salt to about 2200 ppm.
