    CYA question

    everyone always refers to cya in a solid form. I bought some stabilizer at Walmart today in a powder form. Is the procedure for adding the same ie. in a sock in the skimmer.

    CYA question

    Yes it's the same method via the sock in the skimmer. Remember it won't fully register on a test for up to a week.
    By solid they are referring to granular form. There is also liquid but it is rather expensive.

    That's a very good plan. Very easy to raise CYA, PITA to lower it.

    Sorry about that, I can see the confusion. What we mean, is powder as opposed to a liquid variety.

    The truly solid forms of Cya, come in the form of Trichlor/Dichlor pucks.
