    Accidentally used "chlorine only" vial for TA test!



    One time only. Do I need to get a new vial for chlorine testing now? If o, where's a good place to get one?

    That isn't really a problem. The only reason the vials are kept separate is that the FAS-DPD chlorine test tends to cause a slow accumulation of a black haze on the vial which eventually makes reading the other tests more difficult. As long as you didn't have any problems reading the test results, everything is just fine.

    I agree with this. It takes a while for the hazing to start.

    But if you ever need a new one I would get it from here
