Thread: Proper CYA technique

    Proper CYA technique

    The Taylor website says mix for 30 seconds and then poor into comparator. Another CYA instruction I have on my Pool Solutions PS232 Kit from Ben says mix and wait 30 seconds then poor into comparator. I have tried it both ways and it does make a difference.

    What is the offical way to do this?

    Add CYA reagent to pool sample, Mix, wait 30 seconds, Mix again, then pour into the view tube.

    I mix it for 30 seconds of shaking, let it sit for about 2-3 minutes in case the temp is low and the reaction is slow because of this, give it another shake and then dispense in the view tube.

    A little higher reading if I mixed for 30 seconds and then poured into tube without waitng.
