If you are using a proper test kit, such as theTaylor K-2006 or the TFTestkits TF-100, then the Total Alkalinity (TA) test goes from green to red. At very high Free Chlorine (FC) levels, it may instead go from blue to yellow. If you are referring to this blue-to-yellow transition, then use more thiosulfate drops (R-0007) at the start of the test.
