    Buying CYA help please

    Is this good stabilizer? ... ifications

    It is the only one I could find at my Walmart.

    Where do YOU buy CYA? What is a good/cheap price?

    I kept the receipt so I can take it back if needed.

    Kim- I am loving reading the Pool School. I learn something new each time.

    That's the right stuff. And probably the best price you're gonna find.

    Yes, that one is fine.

    I like Amazon, 8lbs for $30 delivered. It is only slightly less expensive, but it saves me driving to the store.

    Interesting the 2 recent bad review this got ... wonder how long they waited to test the CYA? Either they did not wait a week or maybe there was some bad batches here too.

    I have about a 50lb bucket of cya. Can I store this under my deck or do I need to leave it inside my garage?

    I'd store it inside. Keep the container sealed and it'll be fine.
