EDIT: I should have made it clear that not only is this a different type of pool than "normal", but, I can't even operate the equipment yet - so there's no circulation - until the water level gets higher - which takes weeks - and - the CYA is in the "professional" powdered form (not the low solubility "retail" granules) - so the problem set is not the typical one.
The question is how best to professionally distribute pounds of cyanuric acid powder in a single sitting.
After emptying & almost refilling my pool (from my slow well), I went through 12 gallons of chlorine in the three weeks that it has taken to almost fill it - and I still have a week or so to go on the filling (all without benefit of the pool cleaning system or the filtration system, which requires a higher water level).
Yet, my chlorine level was again down to zero today.
So, to cut my chlorine losses, I picked up a dozen pounds of the special "professional" 98% HASA powdered Cyanuric acid, and was wondering what's the best way to distribute this professional product, given my non-standard circumstances, namely:
a) I can't yet operate the skimmers nor the filter (because the water level is still too low).
b) Even if I could operate the skimmers, they're unfiltered (all they do is feed the pop-up jets) so I wouldn't want clumps of CYA cloging up the water valves.
c) The sun is killing the chlorine almost as fast as I can pour it in, even with four big 3" trichlor floaters in the pool!
This 98% CYA baby powder "appears" to dissolve quicker than the 99% hard granules do, but it also clumps quickly if I just drop it into the pool.
