Protects all the free chlorine in your pool from being lost and acts as sun block.
One of the most common chemicals used for the prevention of chlorine loss in swimming pools is Cyanuric Acid (also called CYA, Conditioner, or Stabilizer); it protects the free chlorine from being destroyed by the sun ultraviolet rays. That being said, people often wonder what other effects cyanuric acid has in our swimming pool water and how we can best utilize this chemical to our advantage. In this article we will go over this information and how it relates to your pool water maintenance.
Cyanuric acid is known as a stabilizer for the chlorine in swimming pools exposed to sunlight. It helps reduce the chlorine loss by protecting the free chlorine in the pool from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, reducing the amount of chlorine needed to maintain proper sanitizer levels. Because of this, cyanuric acid can help reduce the cost of maintaining a safe and clean swimming pool.
