    TA Test question

    "Wipe with a damp cloth between each drop..."?
    Do we really do that? Damp with what? Pool water?
    Why is this done?

    Inquiring minds...
    Thanks

    Doesn't really matter what it's damp with. You are trying to remove static charge.

    Static electricity makes the drops hang on the tip so they end up smaller than they should be, which gives falsely high TA readings. It only seems to be a problem when the R-009 is new. A couple days ought to get rid of it. I'd just dampen the paper towel with some tap water, since the paper towels are probably within reach of the kitchen sink anyway.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Excellent
    I was wondering if it was a contamination thing and that didn't make sense
