    Fast Track Testing

    Question: If I "know" the FC is going to be high, can I add the drops, from the test kit, in increments of 5 or 10 prior to mixing ?
    Will doing this skew the results ?
    I'm in the shocking process and adding lots of drops (20 - 30)
    tonight I added 41 (mixing after each drop) and it becomes tedious quickly !

    A what ? "speedstir" ??? Joke, right ? (I wish there WAS something so I wasn't "swirling" all the time...(making me dizzy LOL)) Thanks for the quick response. It will go a lot faster if I can add 5 drops, swirl, etc.
