    After adding CYA, how soon can you start borates

    My question is:
    After adding CYA, how soon can you start this process? Also what is the best way to dissolve the CYA when you have a cartridge filter? The bucket says pour slowly into skimmer....

    If you won't need to clean the filter for at least a week I suggest putting the CYA in a sock and putting the sock in the skimmer.

    You can add borates any time as far as CYA is concerned, they don't interact. However, it is best to lower TA before adding borates.
