    My new Fas-Dpd testing kit

    Hello,

    I just receive my new test kit and i have some questions

    1- when i use 25 ml, i add 5 drops to found cc, but when i use 10ml sample, shoul i also add 5 drops?

    2- some one use 5 ml sample (each drops is 1ppm)?

    3- there is an example (10 ml sample):
    0 drop - pink
    1 drop - pink
    2 drops - pink
    3 drops - pink
    4 drops - light pink
    5 drops - clear
    What is my ppm level?

    Thanks !!

    Congrats on your test! 5 drop clear multiplied by .5 = 2.5FC

    That was to answer 3 for you. I don't know the answer to 1 or 2. I always use 10ml

    With a 10ML sample you add drops until its CLEAR then take that number and multiply it by .5 so with 5 drops turning it clear your FC level is 2.5!

    Now all you need to do is add bleach to get that level up!

    The only people who use a 5 ml sample are generally those involved in clearing a swamp who are running short of reagent.

    And yes, still 5 drops of the second reagent to test CC.

    1) Yes add 5 drops for the CC test whether you use 10ml or 25ml water sample.

    I think the others were covered.
