Moved from here.
I need to add about 10 lbs of CYA (im at 0). Would i just pour it all in skimmer slowly and then let it run straight for a few days? Or can i let pump go off at night?A cotton sock can slow the process. The best is a knee high nylon stocking or other very thin sock.
No need to test for the CYA until 24 hours after the CYA is fully dissolved from the sock.
If you do not plan to backwash in the next week, you can dump out the sock contents in the skimmer with pump running. I suspect it will be mush and will not even be caught by your filter.
