    How long do I have to test after sample?

    I cant be at home during the day to test my CYA where the sun is at my back.
    Can I take a sample before leaving work and test it a few hours later when the sun is out?
    Does a sample skew the test results if waiting too long?

    I think what messes the test up is, the water being too cold. I have been told to bring inside the house to warm up, then test. So I guess this would make waiting a little while just fine.

    Just keep it sealed in a closed container. A couple hours shouldn't affect the test

    Thanks guys - that helps. I was testing my CYA after hours and in less-than-ideal lighting.
