    Reading CYA Levels

    Hey guys.

    Yup, the end result, I'm just that dense. The CYA level readings are around the other side of the comparator tube in the Taylor kit. I thought I'd searched it all over for markings but somehow missed that.

    Story of my life. I can mix the two chemicals and do the test and then get stuck on the simple part.

    Thanks for the help.

    Steve, don't sweat it. I believe I made the exact same mistake years ago when I first got my Taylor kit. I think I called Taylor to find out.

    In case anyone searches for this thread and wants to know what we are talking about -- it's this link where the CYA test markings are on the back of the Taylor comparator.

    Yeah, for some reason that initial thread from earlier today is gone.

    We just went through a major site upgrade and some of the more recent posts were lost in the transition. All of the posts should be fine from here on.
