    Two different sets of instructions from TF-100 kits for CH

    So I bought a new TF-100 to go along with my new pool and because my old one got misplaced, but since found the old one but got the instruction cards mixed up and I can't tell which is the old one. One says to add 20 drops of R-0010, 5 of R-0011L and multiply by 10 while the other says to add 10 of R-0010 and 3 of R-0011L and multiply by 25. Which one should I be using or are they the same end result?

    If you are going to add 20 drops of R-0010, then you are going to be using 25ml of sample water. if you use 10 drops your are using 10ml of sample water. I am using the Taylor K-2006c kit and it has the instruction for both. Good luck

    This change was made a few years ago to help the user save reagents. By using only 10ml of water and ten drops you are losing a slight bit of accuracy but saving a ton of reagents. Both will work just fine.

    Great thanks all, I'll toss the extra older sheet then. I thought I was going crazy because I had them both in the box for some reason so sometimes I would use the old card and wondering why I was using so much reagent when I didn't have to the previous week lol
