Even the blackest swamp water wont interfere with the CYA test. Once you pull a sample out of the pool it won't look that bad.

Scoop some up into the view tube and see if it obscures the black dot. I doubt it will. If it doesn;t, you can test CYA.
😊Thank you, Richard! I tested CYA & the dot is very faint at 30ppm (which is my goal.)
Would you recommend that I leave it alone or add some stabilizer?
Also, is it OK that I picked up a single-use hth floater (99% trichlor)for the 2 days I will be out of town?
