​Own A Salt System? You’ll Need Cyanuric Acid

Cyanuric Acid (also known as chlorine stabilizer) acts as a sunscreen for your pool. The pool water’s exposure to the sun causes the chlorine to burn up, which ends up lowering chlorine levels. Luckily cyanuric acid locks the chlorine in your pool and allows you to maintain a chlorine level between 1 to 3 ppm. 

Cyanuric Acid can come in two forms, a powder granular, and a liquid form. The liquid form of stabilizer has become a favorable choice because you don’t need to wait for it to dissolve and can pour it directly into the skimmer or around the edges of the pool.

Often many people will ask why their salt chlorine generator system is not working. The fact is that it is working but you are just unable to tell because you have a low amount of cyanuric acid in your pool.

In order to make sure that you have enough cyanuric acid in your pool, you must test your water using test strips or consult with your local pool store. Levels must be between 30-50 ppm, we prefer to see it in the higher range closer to 50 ppm if you have a chlorine generator.
