Cyanuric Acid

Cyanuric acid, often called stabilizer or conditioner, is an organic chemical compound added to pool water. CYA does not naturally occur in water and will only be in water if added.
Cyanuric acid interacts with chlorine in two distinct and very important ways:

  • Protects chlorine from degradation by UV light
  • Buffers the harshness of chlorine.
