Well, I suggest you not add any more CYA. That means no pucks.

I also suggest you check CH; if you had it acid washed for scaling, you don't want the scale to reappear. Nor do you want to start leaching Calcium out of the plaster.

Country...is CYA of 80 a typo :scratch: Or perhaps you added stabilizer after the fill?

If you have high CH, use a 10 ml sample. Saves time and reagent, and realistically, do you really care if the reading is 610 or 625? It's close enough.

If you expect that your CH level is extremely high, you can do the test so that each drop is 25, instead of 10, to speed up the process and save on reagent usage. Use 10 ml of pool water, 10 drops of R-0010, 3 drops of R-0011L, and multiply the number of drops of R-0012 by 25 to get your CH level. http://www.troublefreepool.com/extended-test-kit-directions-t25081.html

Yea on the CH use a 10 ml sample and then use the following. ( I do not know the exact reagant number, but know the amount of drops to use)

Instead of 25 use 10 ml sample

Also the one that calls for 20 drops on 25 ml sample, use 10 drops on the 10 ml sample
Also the one that calls for 5 drops on the 25 ml sample, use 3 drops on the 10 ml sample

Each drop of the third reagant where you multiply by 10 when using a 25 ml sample, multiple each drop by 25 on the 10 ml sample.
