    Is leslie's instant conditioner cya

    I went to Leslie's and asked for CYA and they gave me "Instant Conditioner" The one gallon bottle states that it is comprised of 35% monosodium cyanurate monohydrate. An asterik by this number states that this is equivalent to 30% cyanuric
    acid.

    If I am using Pool Math and want to raise my CYA, is this what Pool Math calls "Liquid Stabilizer"

    FYI:

    My test numbers today were: PH 7.4; CL (test from blue box) 1.0-2.0 (not exactly sure); CH 200; TA 120; CYA (between 50-60); FC 1.5; Combined Chloramines .5 I think I need to raise CYA to maintain more Chlorine.


    Thanks

    If I remember correctly Leslie's carries Natural Chemistry Instant Conditioner. Yes, that is CYA or aka Stabilizer. You have two different types of conditioner/stabilizer. Instant (liquid) is poured into the pool and results in a much quicker rise to CYA levels. Solid (granular) is slowly dissolved over a period of days to raise your CYA. As you would expect the instant conditioner is more expensive than the granular.

    Check the directions on the bottle but if I remember correctly 1 gal per 10,000 gallons of water to raise CYA 32 ppm.

    Yes, it is Cya. Liquid stabilizer in pool math.

    We do not typically suggest the liquid because it is so much more expensive ... should have gone to Walmart

    Thanks everyone. I'll remember that next time. I was just happy to find someplace that had what I thought I needed.

    Old (pool store) habits are hard to break. But generally speaking, you'll find anywhere from 25-50% increase in those pool store prices as compared to Wal-Mart or your local grocery store. I generally only go to the "pool store" when I need a specialty part, toy, or as a morale-booster of sorts as I watch others do what I used to before TFP ... spend! $$$$$$$
