$49.99 $35.99

Description

 CYA Down will lower cyanuric acid in pool. 

Cya reducer is a proprietary blend of biodegradable, environmentally friendly enzymes designed to work with with all swimming pool, spa and hot tub water treatment programs. CYA Down does not naturally aid in the reduction of cyanuric acid levels. CYA Down does not contain cyanuric acid (CYA) 

What is CYA? 

Cyanuric acid is a weak acid that reduces chlorine loss in your pool water by shielding it from the sun’s UV rays, effectively “stabilizing” your chlorine. It also goes by the name CYA, pool stabilizer, or pool conditioner.

The ideal range for cyanuric acid in your pool is between 30 and 50 ppm (parts per million). Anything significantly higher and you should be keeping a close eye on your water chemistry, as it may be compromised.

 

Why You Have High Cyanuric Acid

It’s chlorine’s job to keep your pool water clean, but depending on which type of chlorine you use, it may or may not contain cyanuric acid. Stabilized chlorine has CYA built-in, whereas unstabilized chlorine doesn’t.
Heads up: Dichlor and trichlor are stabilized types of chlorine, and sodium hypochlorite (liquid chlorine), lithium hypochlorite, and calcium hypochlorite are unstabilized.


The main reason for high CYA levels in your pool is from using too much-stabilized chlorine. When the pool water evaporates, CYA remains in the water, much like other chemicals such as salt and calcium.


As an example, 1 lb. of the trichlor in a 10,000-gallon pool will raise the CYA level by 6 ppm. With the ideal range for pool CYA being 30 ppm to 50 ppm, it’s easy to see how this level can quickly spike.

How To Use

SHAKE WELL BEFORE USING 

Always begin with a clean and balanced pool, Clean or backwash filter before use.

Required pH: 7.2 - 7.8

For pools with less than 100 PPM of CYA add 32 oz. per 10,000 gallons of pool water

For pools with more than 100 PPM of CYA add 32 oz. per 7,500 gallons of pool water

For hot tub or spas with less than 100 PPM of CYA add 3 mL. per 100 gallons of water.

For hot tub or spas with more than 100 PPM of CYA add 4.5 mL. per 100 gallons of water.

FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS:

Chlorine Levels should be 2 PPM or Less.

Pool water temperatures above 80 degrees.

Higher chlorine levels will results in longer response times.

CYA Down is not recommended for pools with chlorine levels above 5 PPM.

Allow 7-10 days before retesting.
