    Taylor kit really need 2 scoops for fc test with 10 ml of pool water?

    With the Taylor test kit, it says add 2 scoops of powder when performing the fc test. Is this for 10ml of pool water too or do I only need 1 scoop? (It doesn't make sense to me to use the same amount of powder for 10ml and 25 ml of pool water). Just don't want to waste supplies! Thanks!
    40,000 gallon vinyl in-ground SWG (but we think it's broken) so we don't use as a SWG. Cartridge filter. Taylor K-2006 kit. Well water.

    One is plenty for the 10ml water sample ... unless you are at a high shock FC level when you might need a little more.

    You can not use too much powder, but too little can cause some issues sometimes with identifying the end point.
