    Ion Exchange to Lower Cyanuric Acid?

    It sounds like Reverse Osmosis (RO) maybe too expensive to be a practical solution to lower CYA, but is ion exchange a more cost-effective way to remove CYA? If so, does anyone know of a water treatment company in the Dallas, Texas area that uses ion exchange to filter excess CYA out of pool water? Thanks.

    Ion exchange does not remove CYA. It only exchanges small positive higher charged ions such as calcium and magnesium with sodium (or potassium).
