    Smile How many ounces in a pound of dry CYA ?

    I know this is a dumb question, but I forget. Pool Math tells me the ounces, but dry CYA comes marked in pounds---so how many ounces in a dry pound of CYA/stabilizer?
    Thanks friends!

    Current results:
    Chlorine 3
    Alk 90
    CYA 60
    pH 7.6
    38,900 gal., UG, vinyl, SWG, Hayward w/T-15, 1.0HP pump, sand filter, Aquabot Turbo-T

    16, same as everything else
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    16 dry ounces in a pound. If you hover over the ounces on pool math, the cell at the top of the table shows pounds and ounces.

    1 oz volume is about 1 oz weight. So, about 16 oz volume and weight per pound.

    Careful with those measurements! A pound of feathers weigh more than a pound of gold.
