Liquid Chlorine
Starting up my pool, had to add a ton of water so no surprise no fc.

Put in a gallon of liquid chlorine, tested about 4 hrs later, still read zero.

So grabbed a fresh gallon of liquid chlorine poured some straight into the tester, 2 scoop r 0870 and no pink either. The chlorine has a strong smell so don't think it's bad.

The powder is only a year old, and worked last year.

Ordered a fresh bottle from Taylor but extremely disappointed that it died like that, and I'm guessing on how much to add until it gets here.[l

But should ut turn pink with 100 percent bleach or am I missing something.
At about 50 ppm, it will start to bleach it out. That is a few drops in a 5 gallon bucket.

So you do not have an OTO kit with the K2006. Test your tap water. Nearly all municipal tap water has chlorine in it.
