Reading CYA Levels

Hey guys.

Yup, the end result, I'm just that dense. The CYA level readings are around the other side of the comparator tube in the Taylor kit. I thought I'd searched it all over for markings but somehow missed that.

Story of my life. I can mix the two chemicals and do the test and then get stuck on the simple part.

Thanks for the help.

Steve, don't sweat it. I believe I made the exact same mistake years ago when I first got my Taylor kit. I think I called Taylor to find out.

In case anyone searches for this thread and wants to know what we are talking about -- it's this link where the CYA test markings are on the back of the Taylor comparator.

We just went through a major site upgrade and some of the more recent posts were lost in the transition. All of the posts should be fine from here on.
