    CC is it 0.5 or 1?

    I did my chlorine test using the powder and I show 0.5 CC. But after a couple of minutes the test solution is pink again - so I add another drop of R-0003 reagent to get to clear. Total drops is now 2 = 1 CC. Does this additional drop "count" towards to the total? I am guessing yes, because the solution should stay clear and perhaps I am not mixing enough.

    Either way, I am SLAMing tonight.

    No. It will always go pink again if you wait long enough.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    No, the solution naturally turns pink again if left alone for a few minutes. Once you turn it clear the test is over.

    Thanks everybody - that helps a lot.

    Still, I think I will SLAM just to get rid of the 0.5 which hasn't gone away in a week. I think something is eating my chlorine.
