I just bought 100 lbs of CYA. Did think about how to store it. I was going to put it in three 5 gal buckets with plastic lids but I'm a little worried about corrosion. Though about the side of the house but my A/C units are close.

CYA is easy to store. The most important thing is that it stays dry. You need to worry about corrosion when storing chlorine, not CYA.

Just out of curiosity, why 100 lbs of CYA?

As you know it's expensive at the pool store. I have a friend who has a side pool cleaning business so I asked him to get me some CYA. It comes in 100 lbs canisters. I want to keep it in the garage but was a little concerned about corrosion.

That's like the Costco mentality!! "This 5 gallon bucket of guacamole was only twice as much as a little tub at the grocery store." :lol: :lol: :lol:

I guess you have a lifetime supply now!
