    Got my new test kit to use????

    OK, I got the k-2006 and am having a little trouble figuring out the directions. Can anybody give a newb an abridged version of the directions (simplify as much as you can) ? I don't know if I'm making it out to be harder than it actually is do you know if you should use a 25ml or 10 ml sample???
    I may have more questions but I can't get by the chlorine test...arghhhh.

    Thanks in advance

    I pulled together info from a lot of places onto a one-page sheet, see the link in my sig. Basically, unless you have special reasons to do otherwise, use 10ml for the FAS-DPD and 25ml for TA and CH.

    A 25ml sample will use more reagent but give you finer resolution. A 10ml sample uses less reagent and gives you coarser resolution. When testing FC there's no real reason to get 0.2ppm resolution so the 10ml sample is preferable. With the others, 10ppm resolution is generally nicer.
