    From what I've read, it has .75 oz of reagent 1 (R-0851) and 1.5 oz of reagent 2 (R-0852) (about 22ml / 44ml respectively). You need .5ml of R-0851 and 1.0ml of R-0852 for each test, so you should get about 44 tests out of the kit. Don't know about the staining.. perhaps someone else can help on that!

    The kit comes with 22 mL reagents, you're good for 22 tests.

    Yes, but there are two bottles of 22 ml each of R-0852, as can bee seen here. As rtkane said it is 0.5 ml of R-0851 and 1.0 ml of R-0852, as can be seen here, so 44 tests (+-1).

    Depending on other factors, like PH, fiberglass starts to stain somewhere around 0.1 to 0.2 ppm of iron. It will stain at lower iron levels when PH is high, and only at higher iron levels when PH is low.
