    Your CC appears to be too high ... ideally should be 0. Might point to needing to follow SLAM process.

    Yeah, that CC number is a little too high. What does your water look like?

    I agree with Jblizzle on the CC. The good thing is now you can actually get those accurate readings all on your own. Congratulations on the TF-100!

    Ok here we go. Was sloppy on technique. Put too much powder in.
    Redid the test.

    You can not put too much powder in.

    Congrats on the test kit.

    here is a good tip for you.

    After you do the FC test, do not let the solution sit before doing the CC test. The water can go back pink again if you let it sit which will give you a false high CC result. Use teh R0003 and do the CC test immediately after doing the FC.

    That had to be the problem. I did the first test pretty slow. The second time I didn't have to read.


    thanks again.
