    You use CYA to raise your CYA. It is normally packaged as Stabilizer or Conditioner. It get mine at WalMart for 4# for $15. It has a purple lid. We call it CYA for the active ingredient isocyanuric acid and to make it easy to type.

    Re: what to use to raise CYA

    To add the granular CYA to the pool, place the granules in a sock, old T-shirt, or similar implement. Then tie it up and either place it in the skimmer or suspend it in front of a return jet. The handle on an old bleach bottle filled with water makes a great and portable anchor from which to suspend the sock (or whatever you are using) in front of a return jet.

    Use the Pool Calculator to determine the dosage amount.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
