I'm wondering the purpose of using a sock to add CYA.
I used a sock the first time I added CYA.
I put the sock in the skimmer and it was empty in a couple of days.
I added another two pounds a couple of months ago and poured the CYA directly in the skimmer- no problems.
I read somewhere that dissolving the granules through the sock is supposed to prevent clogging the plumbing.
That never made sense to me. The CYA will not harden when trapped in the sock. It remains a powder as it dissolves.
Why would it harden in the pipes?
If I'm overlooking something, I'll stand corrected.
