    hth stabilizer & conditioner? same as cya?

    We seem to have issues in this area, getting CYA as a product alone (wo anything else in)

    Does anyone know whether this can be used and how much to use how this is pkgd?
    It was from local Walmart
    hth Stabilizer & Conditioner
    Ingredients:
    cyanuric acid 108-80-5
    sulfuric acid 7664-93-9
    water 7732-18-5
    (this was taked off the label-husband and I were on the ph, I typed )

    Not sure what the sulfuric acid would do added in?

    anyone?

    Did it list the % of cyanuric acid? If above 95% that is the stuff.

    Use poolcalculator to know how much to add.

    Sulfuric acid will lower the PH a little. However, there is probably only a very very small percentage of sulfuric acid in there.

    Re: hth stabilizer & conditioner? same as cya?

    thanks I am going to look myself, my husband didn't see the %'s. Interesting about the PH. I will keep that in mind.

    I was thinking since I am just opening-top still on, I might wait to get the pool balanced first before adding the CYA. At first was going to add everything at once since it wasn't going to be used till probably next week. Now I am rethinking that. Thinking it might affect getting the chlorine just right and possibly mess up the calculation of how much to add. Does t hat make sense?

    I would start getting the CYA in there now. It takes time to show up on a test, about a week.

    So I don't plug in any cya till it starts to register. Act as if there is none to get my proper bleach amts?

    No. Shoot for 30 to 40 ppm of cya and assume its there and use cya fc chart for your fc levels. Make sense?
