I can be a big problem

I'm the Cyanuric Acid in your swimming pool (AKA, conditioner or stabilizer). When you use products that contain me, like traditional 3" tabs or sticks, I may overstabilize your pool water. That means your chlorine is less effective at killing algae and bacteria, making the water unsafe for swimmers.

Here are some signs I may be a problem for you:

  • Green Algae
  • Cloudy Water
  • Plaster Degradation
  • Purple Stains
  • Swimmers experience ear infections or gastrointestinal issues

Are you at risk?

Your test strip is on its way!

You should see other sanitizers.

Finally, there’s a solution for preventing high CYA levels. It’s an old problem, and it took years to develop the truly ground-breaking poolife® NST® tablet, a slow-dissolve cal hypo tablet. This patent-pending and exclusive technology is truly a better alternative to traditional chlorine tablets.

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
