    Taylor K-2006 FAS-DPD: Chlorine 10ml test, one or two scoops?

    I've seen this mentioned on other post and wanted to make sure I'm getting it right.
    If doing the K-2006 FAS-DPD Chlorine test with a 10ml sample I only need one scoop of the powder? I've been adding two since the test instructions under the lid don't mention otherwise.
    Another aspect that always makes me second guess is how full should the scoop be. Overflow the scoop seems to be fine per a Taylor (official looking) video I saw on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxkfYecBzVw).
    Thnx!

    If you have one or two undissolved particles in the tube after mixing, you have enough. The particles will disappear when you start adding drops.

    The amount isn't critical at all. Put in one scoop and, if the solution turns pink, that is enough.

    If it doesn't turn pink at all, 99% of the time it's because you have no chlorine.

    If it "flashed" pink but then clears up, add another scoop.

    Is a light shade of pink good enough? I also have second guesses with that, specially when deciding if I need to keep adding drops or not.

    Nope. It will go totally clear when you're done. No tint.
