    Whoops- I left my test kit outside overnight in the rain

    The individual regent bottles were closed, but the blue case was left open and had a bunch of rain in it. Are the regents still good?

    This is a Taylor K-2006, btw.

    If the reagent can't leak out, the water could not leak in. So they are not diluted if that is your concern. What was the overnight temperature?

    More concern would be if you left them the 100 degree sunlight all day.

    Likely, everything is fine.

    Overnight low was in the low 50s.

    I had my PH sample sitting there for 36 hours

    As long as everything was capped tightly, I think that you should be good.
