Lamotte Test Strips - Insta-Test Cyanuric Acid
Cyanuric Acid strip measures the stabilizer levels from 0 to 250 ppm instantly!Cyanuric acid is used to protect chlorine from UV degradation by sunlight. In sun-belt regions, higher levels of Cyanuric acid are common due to the user’s eagerness to protect their chlorine and because cyanuric acid does not dissipate by itself. The only way to reduce cyanuric acid levels is by adding fresh water. Since health agencies feel high levels of cyanuric acid may inhibit the reactivity of free chlorine, most pool owners are directed to stay below 150 ppm. Cyanuric acid levels should be tested monthly, especially if free chlorine is rapidly lost or the pool has been on dichlor or trichlor (chlorines that contain cyanuric acid) for a year or more.
