    testing at shock level.. help please!

    I can't seem to find how to test chlorine when up to shock level (16+). I have the TFT test kit, isn't there a way to test and not use so much R-0871. I see some mention of it around but can't find the exact procedure anywhere.

    Here's a couple alternatives:
    5ml sample, multiply drop count by 1 (used to save on reagent; not as precise)
    10ml sample, multiply drop count by .5 (standard method) - most common
