Liquid Stabilizer/Pool Water Conditioner
Waste of money
Don't waste your money on this stuff. Added 2 gallons to my pool and it didn't bump the stabilizer readings at all. All other chemical tests are within normal range so nothing to keep this stuff from working. As bad as I hate to, I'm going back to the granualr cyanuric acid.

Convenient but pricey
I needed to add some stabilizer to my AG pool to hold the chlorine levels after a rainy May had depleted the CYA. However, dry CYA takes a week or more to dissolve, and usually you have to buy many pounds of the stuff. I only needed a little. I thought I would give the liquid a try. The bottle I got was not as "gluey" as other reviewers have said. I shook it really, really good, poured a very fine stream in front of my return. Some still collected on the bottom, but a little brushing stirred it up and it dissolved. It took about a day for it to fully circulate in my pool and for my test levels to be dependable, but I did get my small controlled increase that I wanted. I wish the price was better though- convenience costs. I also had to add some dry acid to bring the pH down. The bottle says it has a "salt friendly" pH- which apparently is higher than the 7.5 neutral pH that I prefer.

Wow- what an improvement
Our well water is incredibly hard (more than 2000 ppm TDS). I tried several things and finally decided the failure to get a good readings was because the water was simply not absorbing the chemicals. I was a bit anxious but added the 2 gallons of stabilizer/conditioner and the pool has been sparkling ever since.

No sludge here!
I just tried this product for the first time. I had read a few other comments saying the product was difficult to pour and left sludge in the containter. Those comments almost kept me from buying this product since convenience was the main point of buying the liquid stabilizer. I used one gallon this morning and it poured easily (about the consistency of a latex house paint). I added some pool water to the empty bottle and the bottle rinsed clean easily. No problems at all with dispensing.
I'll retest the water this evening after circulating for the day to see if I need to add more.
