    Well this was a first

    Was walking through the pool supply aisle at Menards and saw this:

    Looks like they are getting a bit fancy with their CYA label.

    Edit: forgive the bad picture, was on a high shelf and I am a bit short. It says "Chlorine Stabilizer and Conditioner"

    Good luck with that, Menard's! How many consumers know what the chemical composition of CYA is??? And I am afraid people may just buy it thinking it will improve their water. Oh! More new TFP members with high CYA levels. Oh dear...

    Ok, I googled that.

    Triazine derivatives
    N- and C-substituted triazines are used industrially. The most common derivative of 1,3,5-triazine is 2,4,6-triamino-1,3,5-triazine, commonly known as melamine or cyanuramide. Another important derivative is 2,4,6-trihydroxy-1,3,5-triazine better known as cyanuric acid.

    I wonder why in the wide, wide world of sports they are calling it that instead.
