    One year old K2006 kit.

    Will it still test accurately after 12 months? Just opened today and my CYA is hardly readable and last year I was around 40. I think I need to add stabilizer for my chlorine to kill the green beast.

    If you kept it inside, it should be fine

    Okay, What would cause my stabilizer to drop so much of the winter?

    Re: One year old K2006 kit.

    Water replacement on re opening could be a factor, but I can't see where you are. Also common would be the condition of your pool. Did it get Green on you? How much did everything else drop off or otherwise change?

    Please post a full set of test numbers, and let's see what all is going on.

    Re: One year old K2006 kit.

    Okay, my CYA is showing 10. Last year it was 40. No water level changes since last season. My pool temperature is 59 degrees. Does that matter on CYA readings?

    PH - 8.0 +

    I am trying to keep my pool at 12 ppm (Shock level), but it is dropping so fast. Within 1.5 hours it dropped from 12 to 2.4.

    Pool is cloudy Grayish Green and hasn't changed in 2 days with 12" depth visibility. Suggestions?

    Next time FC is under 10 test the ph and adjust it.

    Yes, complete a SLAM procedure to the letter. This will fix it. The link to that is in my signature line. Ask for help with it, we will be glad to lend a hand.

    Re: One year old K2006 kit.

    Loss of CYA + High chlorine demand could point to ammonia conversion. Are you seeing high CC levels too?
