    Washing testing "dishes"

    Do I need to be washing the testing vials in distilled water after each use? It seems that I remember reading that somewhere, but now I can't find it anywhere. I've just been washing them with our "city" water after testing. Does this leave extra chlorine to dry in the vials?

    I just wash mine out with regular water before and after each test.

    I rinse with pool water (from my sample bottle) before I test and pour out the tests into the sink and rinse with tap water after the test.

    BTW, when done with a test, I let the tap water fill and overflow the vial to get the chemicals out and then dump the SpeedStir pill into my hand.
