This paper examines the potential costs affiliated with two common sanitizers, calcium hypochlorite (Cal Hypo) & trichloroisocyanuric acid (Trichlor). The study also examines the possible benefits and costs of extra chemicals added to the water from inside the sanitizer solution.

Cyanuric acid (CYA) is known to be the precursor and primary component of traditional bleaches, herbicides and other disinfectants. If you’re adding stabiliser sanitizer to your pool, it is inevitable that you are also adding CYA. This study observes the buildup of CYA over time and offers alternatives to application and maintenance strategies. ​

This study measures the effects of cyanuric acid (CYA) on water balance (pH) and the surrounding plaster. The study also highlights the importance of measuring the Longelier Saturation Index (LSI) in two separate approaches.

Discussing the CDC’s Model Aquatic Health Code standards, specifically on lowering the limit of cyanuric acid.

​This study reviews the strength and timeline for disinfection of a pool when CYA is used.
