    CYA test

    Hi. I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I have the TF-100 test kit and the label came off my CYA mixing bottle. As I understand it, the label is to be used as a guide for adding the correct amount of pool water and R-0013. I don't remember exactly where the label goes. Close to the top I think, but I'm not sure. Is there an exact ml amount of water and R-0013 that I can use for this test instead?

    Welcome to tfp, schertzy82

    Half the bottle pool water the other half R-0013. The lower label edge marking the how much pool water to put in was exactly in the middle of the wide part of the bottle, and the top of the label where you added the R-0013 was at the top of the wide part of the bottle.

    It is a 50/50 mix of pool water and reagent.

    Great, thanks! 50/50 sounds easy enough.

    The label came off of my bottle as well. I've been using 15ml of pool water and 15ml of R-0013.
