    Cyanuric Acid Reducer

    For those of you that would prefer not to have to drain and replace your water, I saw a product today available in an Ace Hardware store. A gallon was $40 and I think I recall it stating a reduction of 60ppm per 10,000gal. There was no statement of ingredients, just patent pending.
    20,000 gal. vinyl chlorinated pool
    Cartridge filter

    If it is the same product I am thinking of there are quite a few threads about it in the deep end section here. Most say it doesn't work as well as it is advertised if I remember correctly.

    That is correct. So far users who,have tested the product and conducted regular testing using recommended testing procedures were unable,to duplicate the manufacturer claims.

    Multiple threads are in the Deep End showing the test results.

    Bio-Active is the product I was mentioning. It is a live bacteria that eats CYA. Apparently you need low levels of FC for it to not die. I think most got about a 15-20ppm loss of CYA.

    There was a melamine based product that was discontinued a while back. Perhaps it's that. If you can post a picture, that would help.
