    Lost my little blue measuring scoop for Chlroine test

    Hey guys, was about to do my weekly test of my pool water using my TFTestkit when I realized the little blue scoop for the chlorine test was missing. I have no idea how I lost it, been testing with it for 4 years now. I guess I will have to order a new one. In the meantime, how should I go about testing the water? Is a little pinch good enough?

    See if you can find something like this locally (plastic is better) -

    Amazon.com: Pinch Dash Smidgen Measuring Spoons: Sprinkle Dash Pinch Measuring Spoons: Kitchen Dining

    Adding extra powder is not a problem, adding too little powder can skew results. I use one of these -

    Amazon.com : Taylor Unit Dose Dispenser : Swimming Pool Chemicals And Supplies : Patio, Lawn Garden

    But note it only works with Taylor bottles not the bottle of powder that comes with the TF100

    You can use the end of a pocket knife as a scoop (its what I use), or a half a popsicle stick or anything that's small enough to get a little scoop of powder......
