are you sure you arent checking the P.H. Chlorine should be yellow. Unless you are using another form of sanatizing

check what you are testing. Sounds like PH. If you are using drops... buy the test strips. Cost a little more but easier and more accurate.

Too much chlorine. That's what a drop test does as the level goes higher.

If you are using the cheap "oto" test method, the test will turn orange when chlorine levels get above 5ppm. It will even get into the reds and even brown as chlorine gets even higher. I suggest getting a DPD/FAS test kit. They are more expensive, but are very acurate, especially at high chlorine levels. STOP DUMPING CHLORINE IN UNTILL YOU GET A HANDLE ON THIS !!!!!!!
