    CYA test help

    I have the TF-100 test kit, and my label fell off of the CYA dropper bottle. Can anybody that has the same test kit measure how far from the bottom of the bottle the label starts? Thanks for your help!

    The label is 1" high and the top edge of it is even with top edge of the fat part of the bottle.

    Re: CYA test help

    I think the reagent is a 1 to 1 mix with the pool water. So you should be able to fill the bottle to the normal level with water and pour it into one of the graduated cylinders to see how much of the solution you need. Dump half of it out and put the remaining half back in the bottle and that is where the the bottom of label should be. But someone should be along shortly with a measurement...

    Edit: I guess I type slow!

    Yeah, however you figure it, it should be a 50/50 mix of pool water and R-0013.
