BEFORE YOU GET HURT,

WE SHOULD BREAK UP.

I’m the Cyanuric Acid in your pool (AKA, conditioner or stabilizer.) And when I overstablize, you could be in trouble. So you may think I’m protecting your pool’s chlorine from destruction by sunlight, but when you have too much of me, I can cause some damage.

When I’m balanced, you’re good.

When in proper balance, Cyanuric Acid (CYA) is a valuable, beneficial chemical to your pool.

But I can get out of control.

And you should get tested.

Things can get ugly.

It's not you, it's me.

  • Adding 1 lb. of typical chlorine to your pool adds over ½ lb. of CYA into the water.
  • CYA levels build up with each application.
  • More than 50ppm of CYA in a pool causes overstabilization.
  • Don’t know if your pool is overstabilized? Get tested!

I can get out of control quickly.

Overstabilization is bad news. It...

  • Can make your pool water unsafe
  • May put your family at risk
  • Causes algae growth
  • Makes chlorine less effective, decreasing its bacteria-killing power
  • Will reduce the life expectancy and integrity of your pool’s plaster surfaces and cause costly repairs
  • Could require you to drain your pool and rebalance the water

Even State Regulators know I’m a problem.

  • 40 states regulate CYA levels in commercial pools
  • 10 prohibit CYA in indoor applications
  • 2 states (New York and Alaska) prohibit it altogether

You should see other sanitizers.
