    CYA & Vendor Prices

    I went to a local franchise pool store to purchase 4 Lb. CYA. Cost was $35.99. This to me appeared expensive and I suspected that I can do much better if I shop around.
    Walmart's cost was about $14.99 for 4 lb. of 96% cya.
    Lowe's cost was about the same for 4 lb. of 100% cya.

    Makes one wonder how some of these franchise stores manage to stay in business.

    Some people do not want to understand and just want someone to tell them what to buy and dump in their pool ... that is how they stay in business.

    There are also those that have been pool stored to the point where they think all the pool chemicals not only must come from the pool store, but must be the same brand, having companies like Bio Guard name pH reducer / dry acid Lo and Slo, and their granular chlorine shock product , burn out, etc. does not help.
