Ok here I go again . I keep reading about the CYA and how people tend to use a sock ,tie it to the latter or set it up near the return. I wasn't sure before reading these posts so I just dumped about 1lb in front of the return . what a mistake that was it just sat on the bottom of the pool for a couple of days I hope it didn't do any damage. Well I ran to the local pool store asked where should i put the CYA Stabilizer he said I should just dump it in the skimmer. I hope that was good advice I don't hear anyone say that here. when I did I think it slowed the clearing of the water. What is the normal or Recommended run time for a pump.
