OK, I'm ready to start getting balanced for my SWG, and I read on the forum that I can put CYA in a sock and let it dissolve...so I tried it. Thing is, I may be showing some severe (and humorous) ignorance here, but I used a regular (old argyle) cotton sock...was I supposed to use a skimmer sock or other similar type material instead?
My cotton sock is pretty thick, and it seems to be letting the CYA dissolve, but VERY slowly. I put probably 2 lbs. in it, and it hasn't dissolved yet and it's been over 48 hours.
