    CYA Sock?

    Really dumb question here. Is there a special type of sock I should use to put my cyanuric acid in or can I just grab one out of my drawer (if I can find one with out a hole) and but some cyanuric acid in it?
    Thanks

    Well it does NEED to be a cute sock AND you have to take a picture of it so we can make sure it is cute enough LOL

    You can do what I do and dig through your SO's sock drawer to find any sock that does not have a hole in it. Tube socks do work great for me but any that will hold the powder and allow water in to dissolve it will work.

    Eers,

    It would be best to use a sock that you don't plan to wear the next day...

    I find the best ones for me is a long athletic or gym style sock, with no holes..

    Thanks,

    Jim R.

    I actually use 2 of the long white athletic socks (almost like soccer socks). Split the CYA into the 2 socks, tie them together, and then I can hang it over my brush pole out in front of the return jet.

    lol thanks guys. First pool so I'm over analyzing every thing.

    Kim I am from WV and you know we go bare foot most of the time so my sock choices are limited.
