You guys are getting preoccupied with 5 year old questions.
BTW, the notion, that too much chlorine will bleach out test for chlorine level is absolutely absurd.
On the yellow dye as well as on red dye!

Of course it will, it is working to try and clear the pool.

Have you used any chemicals with bromide in them, such as Yellow Out? Once you get bromine in the pool it is difficult to get a reading on test strips. But you should be able to measure the chlorine/bromine residual using an OTO test kit (the yellow kit). If this is OK, don't worry. You have a bromine pool, and whenever you add chlorine, it automatically converts it into a bromine residual in the water.
