    CYA Test (50 ppm reference images)

    For anyone else who is as frustrated by the uncertainty involved in the CYA test, here are some images to help reassure, at least.

    Can I add connectivity to Aqua Logic or must I upgrade everything?

    Hi everybody, I'm so glad to have found this place and I've been learning from the firehose since I moved into a new place with a 2004 SWG setup. My first question is the most important before I spend some serious change on a new system, so I hope someone has experience with this dilemma. The...
