    Shelf life o f CYA Reagent

    I just opened my pool and found that I ran out of CYA Reagent at the end of the season last year. I need to order more, but find I really ran through alot of it last year when I started BBB. Now I'm a seasoned veteran (already up and running in only 5 days!!!!)

    Just visited the order site and found that it is sold in 8 oz bottles. Can I buy two to save on shipping, or will it go 'bad' before I'm able to use it all? Basically, what's the shelf life?

    thanks,
    theresa

    The CYA reagent is good for several years as long as it doesn't freeze or get left in the sun for a long time.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
