Can someone please walk me through using my chlorine reagents to test for bromine? I have R-0870, r-0871, and R-0003.
Thank you in advance!

Edit: strikethough the mistake, correction in red
Use it the same as you would testing for chlorine but multiply your result by 2.25. For example, using the 10 ml sample size, [s:35t236q9]instead of multiply your result by 10, you would multiply by 22.5[/s:35t236q9] if you got a result for FC of 10 ppm, then bromine would be 22.5 ppm. An example: (20 drops/2)*2.25= 22.5 ppm Free Bromine.

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.
Thanks!

Easier to just use 25 ml of water and then each drop is .5 bromine
Yes that us much easier! Thanks!

For my Spa - I am using the K-2006 and when I test for the Bromine instead of the test going clear when I add R-0871 it turns brown. my Bromine is extremely high right now because I just started up the spa (over 40 ppm) and added a fresh fill and new bromine and chlorine to shock. Is the brown color normal for this test when you test bromine?

From the extended test kit directions:Originally Posted by jewing3. Using the small spoon shaped end of the dipper, add one heaping dipper, or two level dippers, of R-0870 and swirl to mix. If the sample turns pink for a moment and then turns clear again, or if it turns brown, add another dipper of R-0870. If the sample remains clear the entire time, your FC level is probably zero, however it is best to verify that with an OTO chlorine test, since the FAS-DPD test is prone to the occasional false zero.

Thank you so much. I was using the kit incorrectly. I was counting the 25 ml as 10 ppm per drop. My bromine is not too high. Thank you so much!!!
