    First chlorine test, Taylor K2006

    When I'm adding R0871 to determine FC I counted 8 drops and the tube turned clear. Then while I was grabbing the R0003 the tube went back to slightly pink.

    So, my question is whether I stop counting drops when it turns clear while swirling or do I keep adding drops until it stays clear?

    10 ml sample.

    Add scoop of R-0870.

    Swirl.

    Count drops of R-0871 until clear, while constantly swirling.

    Multiply number of drops by .5 for FC ppm.

    Add R-0003.

    Swirl.

    Count drops of R-0871 until again clear.

    Multiply drop count by .5 for CC ppm

    If left sitting on the counter, the sample will turn pink again one or two minutes after the test is completed. This is normal. extended-test-kit-directions-t25081.html

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
