    Label to CYA mixing bottle came off

    I don't know how much pool water or R-0013 to use now. Anyone know?

    50-50. I typically mix in a measuring cylinder.

    It is a 50/50 mix. Fill your mixing bottle to the neck and pour it into a measuring cylinder to find the volume, divide the volume in half, pour the half volume into the mixing bottle and mark the level with a sharpie.

    I'm guessing its more than 7ml. I tried that for both but it doesn't even fill the vial up. My CYA is on the lower end so I need more than that. I'm hoping it reads at least a 30 but the vial only filled to 50 and them I ran out. I wonder if I can poor it all back into mixing bottle and add more water and r-0013 to it instead of starting over.i hate to waste the chemicals.

    In my Taylor 2006 kit the mixing bottle shows 7ml for pool water and 14ml for chemical. There is still head space in the bottle for mixing/shaking.
    With 14ml being plenty of finished product to get your CYA reading. If you're mixing more, then you're wasting product.

    Well, that stinks! PM me your name and address and we'll send you a new bottle. Those labels are supposed to be pretty much waterproof.

    The Taylor and TFT use the same reagents but different vials and mixers. The TFT test is larger and reads down to 20 instead of 30 and is easier to use and read, and, I assume, more accurate. I use the TFT CYA test instead of the one that came with my Taylor kit.
