Hi All
After completing an AA treatment, adding metal sequestrant, bringing chlorine up to correct level and balancing
Is there a test to check the amount of sequestrant in the water or should it just be used periodicaly

That's a good point.....there is no test for it so you will have to intuit when it has grown weak enough that you need another dose.

There are usually subtle signs of staining or greenish tint to the water. Plastic parts, like skimmers, usually turn a little brown first. When you start to notice that an early dose of sequestrant will usually lift the stains so you don't have to keep doing AA treatments.
