I was wondering if you can just by CYA reagent? I had my water tested to day by Leslie's, to the right of it says to use R-0013 per instructions. I realize that there are lots of smarter people and this is first year testing my water with my own kit (when I bought it, Ben's wasn't available and I didn't know about this site)?
The kit I have doesn't test for CYA. From the previous owner, I have the mixing tubes, no instrucitons, and no CYA testing reagents. That is why I went to Leslie's for the test. I wanted to know CYA. I made mistake of adding two buckets of stabilizer and then was using a floater with pucks from Sam's when I realized the pucks were stablized. I immediately quit using those and am only going to use bleach from now. Lucikly, my CYA is 60, I quit before it was way up.
I want to monitor my CYA myself and stop going to Leslie's.
