    how much water is neede for a test?

    i`m in southern mexico and have had a real problem with the water this year.there seems to be alot of iron in the water and when i add chlorine it turns green.i`m heading back to the states soon and thought i`d take a sample back and have it tested.do i need more than a few ounces to bring to a pool store or other testing facility?thanks

    About 1 oz is plenty but I'd take a few just to be sure.

    If you are bringing water that far, you are sure going to hate it if you run short. I would bring at least a couple of 8oz drinking water bottles full and chuck em in your suitcase. Better to have, and not need it than......well you know the rest.
