    CYA

    Ok, so we all know that high CYA is the major cause of issues in pools, chemical manufacturers can make ever other useless product under the sun, but why cant they make a product that will deplete CYA?

    There has been one, but the cost is excessive.

    what is it? It might be more cost effective then ppl having to drain their pools, especially if they are on a well system, some wells cant handle that much water draw

    The product was almost an "oasis" (was even marketed under the o-ACE-sis label) as I don't remember anybody ever buying the product, just a few people seeing it at Ace Hardware stores.

    It's not just expensive, the the product was melamine, just like what you use in the CYA measurement test. It creates a cloudy, precipitated mess and if you add any more CYA to the water it will cloud back up again.
