    Calcium Test

    I just opened my pool and doing the first set of tests of the year. Everything seemed in order except the calcium test. After adding the 20 drops of R-0010 and the 5 drops of R-0011, I was unable to get the color to change. It stayed red no matter how many drops of R-0012 I added. I added 200 drops and no change. Normally my calcium levels in years past have been in the 200 range. About the same as my fill water.
    I had the same result when testing my fill water.
    Only thing different this year as opposed to last year is this year I purchased a refill kit for my TFT test kit. All new regents.
    Is it possible I have a bad batch of test chemicals for testing the calcium level. All other tests seem to be in line.
    I realize I need to make some adjustments to the numbers below.
    Thanks

    Hmmm. That it turns red, indicates the presence of Calcium. That it doesn't turn to blue.....I'm not sure what that means. Do you remember roughly when you ordered the refill set?
