    fill the tube to either 10 or 25ml

    put in 2 scops of the powder and mix

    put in drops of the 0871 until the water goes from pink to clear. Make sure you keep count of the drops. Multiply the drops by either .2 if you used 25ml of water or .5 if u used 10ml. that is your free chlorine.

    When doing the CYA test, if you fill it up all the way to the top and can still see the black dot, however slightly, the CYA level is very low and is normally written as zero.

    Re: Not understanding my K-2006

    The next step is to get some chlorine in the pool. Since your CC level is slightly high, you should bring your FC level up a little high, perhaps 5 to 7 and then see if the CC level drops down quickly to some more reasonable level.

    You should also raise CYA up, probably raise it by 20 to somewhere around 40 to 50.

    TA and CH are fine for now.

    It would help if you could put the basic specs of your pool in your signature.
