    Liquid Stabilizer - How Long to Retest?

    I read in Pool School about the time interval before retesting after using solid stabilizer.
    How long is sufficient to wait to retest after adding liquid stabilizer (pump running 24hrs)? I would think 24hrs would be sufficient to thoroughly mix.

    That would be extra safe. You could probably test after an hour. The liquid stabilizer dissolves in the water fairly readily so should register correctly on the test after it gets mixed by circulation. It's actually already somewhat dissolved in water as a slurry in the container.

    Thanks very much!!
    Would have been nice to have the pool company know what they are doing and get me started right, but TFP seems to be doing it for me.
