an organic acid, C3O3N3H3, first obtained by heating uric acid or urea, and called pyrouric acid; afterwards obtained from isocyanic acid. It is a white crystalline substance, odorless and almost tasteless; -- called also tricarbimide.
An organic chemical that is added to the water for stabilization of chlorine against breakdown from sunlight.
Also called Stabilizer, Isocyanuric acid, Conditioner or Triazinetrione, a chemical that helps reduce the excess loss of chlorine in water due to the ultraviolet rays of the sun.
stabilizes chlorine. Can be a part of chlorine, as in "stabilized chlorine" or can be added separately if using unstabilized chlorine. Helps prevent deterioration of chlorine from heat or sunlight. Avoid high levels (over 75 parts per million) which can cause discoloration, odors, and other problems.
the active ingredient in chlorine conditioner/stabilizer. Refer to Conditioner, Chlorine listing.
A sun-screening chemical that reduces the loss of chlorine due to evaporation by the sun.
a trimer of cyanic acid
(See stabilizer. Also called conditioner)
The chemical component which extends the effectiveness of chlorine by protecting it from evaporation and decay due to the effects of strong sunlight. Also known as "Conditioner" or Stabilizer
A chemical that protects chlorine against loss as a result of the sun. It is the ingredient commonly found in stabilizer and conditioner.
Also called conditioner or stabilizer, this chemical compound protects chlorine in the waterfrom being destroyed by sunlight. The minimum level is 20 ppm. Very high levels of Cyanuric acid (above 300 ppm) can slow down chlorine activity or effectiveness. Cyanuric acid does not protect bromine from sunlight.
Also called condition and stabilizer - Chemically, conditioner is cyanuric acid. It protects chlorine in the water from being destroyed by sunlight. Minimum level is 10 ppm. Too much does not slow down chlorine activity or effectiveness. Does not protect bromine from sunlight.. E. FILTER Diatomaceous Earth Filter - A filter designed to use diatomaceous earth (D.E.) as the filter medium. The D.E. is added through the skimmer with the pump on, which takes the D.E. and deposits it on a grid. The D.E. then becomes the filter medium.
A chemical compound that protects chlorine from loss due to sunlight. Also referred to as stabilizer.
Chemical used to balance or stabilize the water by preventing sunlight from destroying chlorine. Maximum level is 10 ppm.

A chemical that stabilizes or conditions pool water and lengthens chlorine life by protecting it from sunlight degradation.
A granular chemical added to the pool water which provides a shield to chlorine for protection from UV radiation, which disrupts the molecule, destroying its sanitizing ability.
(CYA or triazinetrione) - chemical added to pool water to "stabilize" chlorine. Helps prevent degradation of chlorine due to UV light.
A stabilizer that works to keep a reserve of "free available" chlorine in pool and spa water, protecting it from direct sunlight. Because their exposure to sunlight is limited, it is not frequently used in spas. It is, however, present in some sanitizers such as trichlor and dichlor. The ideal level is from 30 to 100 ppm in both pools and spas.
A stabilizing component of some chlorine forms, slows degrading of chlorine by sunlight.
Also called conditioner and stabiliser. A granular chemical added to the pool water which provides a shield to chlorine for protection from the sun's UV radiation. It is also found in dichlor/ trichlor products.
A chemical compound added to swimming pool water to reduce the degradation of chlorine by the uv rays of the sun. Chlorinated isocyanurates are the group of chlorine compounds that combine chlorine and cyanuric acid into a form for swimming pool and spa sanitizing.
(also known as conditioner and stabilizer) It protects chlorine in the water from being destroyed by sunlight. Minimum level 30 parts per million. Too much does not slow down chlorine activity or effectiveness. It does not protect bromine from sunlight.
A chemical that has the ability to stabilize chlorine against loss due to sunlight. Cyanuric acid protects the chlorine from ultraviolet light destruction and releases chlorine upon demand. It is the ingredient in POOLIFE® Stabilizer/Conditioner.
Cyanuric acid or 1,3,5-triazine-2,4,6-triol is an organic chemical compound with the chemical formula C3H3N3O3. Synonyms include 1,3,5-triazinetriol,s-triazinetriol, 1,3,5-Triazine-2,4,6(1H,3H,5H)-trione, s-triazinetrione, tricarbimide, isocyanuric acid, and pseudocyanuric acid. This triazine derivative is a stable white solid at room temperature.
