    Proof that hope exists for the Pool Industry Professions

    On my desk today is a copy Service Industry News. On the front page it reads, "Cyanuric Acid & Chlorine: It's all about the ratio". As I read it it is spot on and in agreement with what is provided here. The best part is, it sites the extensive research done by Richard Falk in this field, I don't think I need to tell you who he is.

    Next up---the x10 rule for CC.

    The article can be read here: http://www.serviceindustrynews.net/

    Interesting ... now if the CPO training would be updated

    Although there are still a few things not quite right:
    - Chlorine addition of only 1 or 2 time per week may not be enough
    - No mention of the buffering effect of the CYA to make the water less harsh (alluded to though)
    - CYA does in fact slowly break down and not only lost when water is physically removed

    Despite some fairly small degree of inaccuracy, this is a really good article and will hopefully help some of the techs understand better what we teach about CYA and why.

    Kudos to chem geek (Richard).
