    Stabilizer

    This is my first post and I'm sure I should not be posting this as a new topic but I'm having difficulty navigating the site, so if someone could answer one quick question: Is there a GENERIC stabilizer or do I have to buy the stuff from a pool place?

    You can buy it from WallyWorld, Lowes, Pool Store, HD, etc. Lots of folks say the CYA/stabilizer/conditioner sold at WallyWorld is more powdery and dissolves faster.

    Read the ingredients. It should be 96+% cyanuric acid.

    Re: Stabilizer

    If your asking if there is a generic form of Stabilizer like pool store TA up being just common Baking Soda, then the answer is no, CYA Stabilizer is a pool only product, however as others have mentioned it is available anywhere pool supplies are sold, which includes many hardware stores, and big box stores like Wal-Mart in the their garden/pool sections. Most of this is covered in the pool school link in the upper right of each page here.

    Oh no what's wrong with the liquid stabilizer? I just put some in my pool....conditioner from Leslie's.

    Also, how long should you run your pump after adding? When can you test to see your results?
