    Old liquid CYA

    "is it possible for Instant Pool Water Conditioner (liquid CYA) to be too old? "-------(2 years old in this case)

    That's a good question I thought was asked this morning. Won't all acid bases eventually out gas?

    That would take essentially forever. I'm more concerned with the mixture separating into several different components, some of which don't dissolve so well.

    Yeah, I thought the question was interesting as well. We'll see what he reports.

    Re: Old liquid CYA

    It's a salt, not really much of an acid or a base. It's sodium cyanurate in a slurry. Even acids and bases do not all outgas -- it depends on the specific chemical. In this case, it behaves much more like regular salt and stays in solution and is not volatile.
