I just purchased my TF-100 test kit and ran my first set of tests. I have question that I wasn't sure of a good way to search for, so forgive me if it's been asked before.
In running my tests, I retrieved the appropriate sample size from the pool and retreated to the shady porch table to complete the test, washed the test tube and stirrer bar in the kitchen sink, and then returned to the pool to get the appropriate sample size for the next test, repeat, repeat.
My question is, can a get a larger sample of pool water, say a pint or so, in a clean jar and use this water to refill the test tube with for each new test, or will time in the jar skew the results?
One larger sample would save a bunch of running back and forth, but not a good idea if it jeopardizes the test results.
