I was reading the directions on my brothers CYA package, and it says you can dissolve it into hot water, and just poured it in the pool.

1) will CYA dissolve in hot water quickly?
2) if hot is good, will boiling water be better?
3) if so, would you still need to wait a day before you test?

I've never heard that. What brand? Sounds like more trouble than it's worth. And you don't get to swim around and squeeze the knee high! :)

OK, so he tried it, with minimally positive results. So it seems hot water is only somewhat better than cold water.

Looks like the Sock approach is the good and proven approach.

I switched from socks to knee highs this year. Other than my wife yelling at me a little, they work better and hold more. :thumleft:
