In the final episode of the advanced version of Pool School, Mike addresses the chemical cyanuric acid. Cyanuric acid helps keep chlorine in your swimming pool water. In its natural state, chlorine is a gas. Cyanuric acid is a conditioner that is a buffer solution to hold chlorine in the water, making it effective in your water.  Mike will also discuss other swimming pool maintenance components like algaecides that are copper or copper free. If you’re asking difficult pool care questions like how and when to add cyanuric acid, or you’re wondering whether you should proceed with copper algaecide or copper free algaecide, then the advanced series of Pool School tutorial videos is just for you.
