    testing for CYA

    Hi when testing for CYA if you have fill mixture leftover, can you save and reuse next test or do you need to mix fresh each time? Thanks

    You need to mix fresh each time.
    Once the reagent is mixed, it is only good for 5-10 minutes.

    Once you mix the R-0013 with pool water it's only good for that one test. You can pour the mix back and forth between the mixing bottle and the view tube several times but once the test is done, toss the sample.
