    Added Stabilizer directly to pool

    I am one for following all directions until tonight.Having no time to finish the job, I added 4lbs of needed stabilzer to my pool.
    DIRECTLY to the pool.I mixed it in a bucket but it still sat at the bottom like I expected.
    I brushed as much into intake as I could.
    Is it going to be okay?Has anyone else been the fool like me and done this and will admit it?

    Thank You

    ME! ME!

    I've done it and it'll be okay... it'll disolve in a few days.

    Welcome to TFP!!

    It's NOT a problem for you to have added the CYA directly to the pool! However, if you don't brush it, it can take 7+ days to dissolve on the bottom .

    Congratulations on getting the pool ready to go

    Easiest way to add it is to slowly pour it into your skimmer with pump running, run the pump for 48 hours and don't clean your filter for a week. Test it after one week.

    That's the way I added my stabilizer - I got my pool set up before knowing what I was doing. It still did the job.

    I have added stabilizer before but it was really fine and diluted and added to the skimmer.The stuff from Leslie's Pool Supply is terrible.I'll never buy it again.The other brand I bought dissolved so much easier.
