    How long can I let sample sit before testing?

    If I am doing oclt test, can my hubby get up before the sun and collect the sample and I test it a few hours later? :P

    pH and FC should be tested soon after taking the sample.

    If you wait a few hours after collecting the sample you'll most likely fail the OCLT.
