Pool Stabilizer / Conditioner
does the job
Purchased product and it did exactly what it was supose to do. The recommended dose put my stabilizer level exactly where it needed to be, and two weeks later, has maintained its level. Awesome product!

I have an in deck chlorinator that I used to drop 3" chlor tabs in for my source of chlorination before I retrofitted the system with a salt cell generator, therefore I had this in deck chlorinator not in use any longer until I realized it'd be perfect to pour the stabilizer granuals in and let them disolve slowly and ooz into the pool over a matter of days. I'm able to get a full 8lb pail in at a time. No fuss no muss. Works great.

Use an old Gym Sock.
CYA is essential to a balanced pool...think of it as "Chlorine Sunscreen". Sunlight degrades chlorine fast and if you have no CYA, you can be back at zero free chlorine on a sunny day in hours.
As others have mentioned, it is very slow to dissolve. It WILL dissolve, it just takes awhile. The worst thing you can do is just dump it into your skimmer, as it will just sit in your filter and even raise your filter pressure. Then when you backwash, you wash out all the CYA with it.
The best method I have found is to pour the amount you need into an old gym sock & knot the top. I then take some string and tie the sock in front of the filter return jet flow. Thanks to the constant water agitation the sock will be empty in a matter of days without granules all over your pool bottom.
