    possible for Instant Pool Water Conditioner (liquid CYA) to be too old?

    I found an unopened gallon of this Natural Chemistry Instant Pool Water Conditioner in my garage. Previous owner left it for me. It's been there at least two years in a garage that gets hot in the summer, cold in the winter....

    Probably not. Why not add a small dose (say 10 ppm if you can afford the extra CYA) and see if it shows on the test?

    I did add it yesterday.....

    it was actually a bit granular and clumpy....clumps settled to the bottom, but dissolved relatively quickly by brushing. I'll test CYA later today to see if it's still effective.

    A client just added a brand new bottle - it was clumpy too. Keep us posted!!!

    just checked cya.

    registering around 40.


    I checked yesterday and had zero....but the water was only 67 degrees. I didnt realize until today that water should be at least 70 degrees when testing cya, so I heated the pool to 72.

    Room temp is good enough and uses a lot less electricity. If in a hurry, holding your sample bottle under warm tap water will do too.
