Know the Facts!

Lehmann Pools & Spas practices science-based pool care!  We believe in knowing the facts surrounding all of the products and services we provide – one example is the use of “Stabilized Chlorine.”  If you use Chlorine Tablets – either 1″ or 3″ – you are using “Stabilized Chlorine.”  Here are some facts:

  • Stabilizer – sometimes called Conditioner – is Cyanuric Acid
  • Cyanuric Acid – CYA – protects Chlorine from burnoff due to sunlight
  • CYA inhibits Chlorine’s effectiveness as a sanitizer; especially when CYA is greaater than 50 PPM
  • Tablets continually add CYA
  • Nothing (no chemical) removes CYA once it’s in your pool water
  • To lower CYA, you must remove pool water and replace with fresh

Tablets are convenient, but using them requires care.  Come in to Lehmann Pools & Spas, bring a water sample for testing, and get the facts!
