    How long to vacuum after liquid stabilizer?

    I added liquid stabilizer to my pool last night (Thursday) around 9:30pm. I had to put all new water in my pool and added a whole bottle of liquid stabilizer. Am I safe to vacuum and backwash Saturday morning? I know it says to wait a week for granular cya, but does the same apply to liquid? Thanks!

    Yes, it is fine to backwash, especially if the pump has been running plenty to mix it in. You only need to backwash when the pressure rises 20-25% above the clean pressure.
