    CYA Test Confusion

    I appreciate your advise and help. Glancing does help as if I stare at it, I think my mind can add the dot. At the end of the day, I’ll assume my CYA is 100. My pool has looked amazing so I should leave well enough alone I guess.

    CYA Test Confusion

    Followed it precisely. When I turn my back to the sun, the dot is still visible at the 40 line but not at the 30 line. This improves the variance I guess. I just noticed the notes about using tap water and doubling so I can try that.

    CYA Test Confusion

    Just waited a solid 5mins and I could still see the dot at the 30ppm line.

    CYA Test Confusion

    Same result but I poured the sample back into the fill bottle and will wait for 5 more minutes.

    CYA Test Confusion

    Just remembered I barely had any left because my test filled to the 20ppm line

    CYA Test Confusion

    I didn’t but I will retest. I shook it for a solid 30 seconds.

    CYA Test Confusion

    Ok. Now I’m really messed up. I use the R-0013 CYA reagent on a 50ppm CYA Standard I purchased (R-7065). I could still see the dot at the 30 line but not at the 20 line. Held at my waist in bright sunlight. Now I don’t know what to make of any of my results. My pool reads over 100 and the 50...

    Week vacation

    K-1000 but with bigger Chlorine scale

    I do, but need to do it everyday bc the scale on the K-1000 only goes to 5.

    K-1000 but with bigger Chlorine scale

    Does anyone know of a simple chlorine drop test like the K-1000 that goes up to 10ppm? I have high stabilizer and my minimum target is 8.

    Thanks. The standard solution may help give me piece of mind that I’m doing the test correctly.

    CYA Test Confusion

    I’ve tested via liquid my CYA and have never seen anything below 100. I so wish there was a more definitive test like counting drops. I’ve also tested using two different strips and they both come back 50. I tested the strips with tap water and they correctly showed “0”. Which should I trust...
