    Test kit K2006 ....not happy

    Should have bought tK100 from here, but I'm an amazon prime member hence the k-2006. here is my gripe! you need 7 ml to do a CYA test. Kit says it can do 8 CYA test. But each test take 7ml and the 2 bottles only have 22ml in each, so 48 ml total. Which is 6 tests, not 8!!! Further, there is no...

    Didnt pass OCLT...need to drain more...HELP!!!!

I then filled pool, re-took CYA and it was 85-90. Still high. I then did OCLT test and did not pass. Went from FC 18 to FC...

    Probably a dumb question...but here goes! :+)

    So I have high CYA still after about an 80-85% drain/refill. It was north of 290 before drain and now is around 90. While I realize that I need to maintain a higher level of chlorine, between 10-12ppm, am I correct in assuming that it may "maintain" my chlorine better or "lose less" since my CYA...
