    You can use a 10 mL sample for the TA, CH, and FC tests. You can't for CYA or pH. pH doesn't use much liquid, only 5 drops. CYA is the big one, it uses 7 mL of test fluid per test!

    I personally use the 10 mL sample all the time for chlorine and CH (my CH is around 250). When initially filling my spa and lowering my TA from ~275 to 50, I'll initially test the TA with a 10 mL sample, but since each drop is 25 ppm it's not much use once you get down near 100 as it doesn't have enough resolution anymore, so I switch over to a 25 mL sample.

    For FC, CH, and TA, this is the test drop multipliers for 10 and 25 mL sample sizes.

    Test ppm/drop at 10 mL ppm/drop at 25 mL
    FC 0.5 0.2
    CH 25 10
    TA 25 10

    The SpeedStir is handy as well. Comes with a separate tube with 10 and 25 mL marks and a little magnetic stir bar. It spins the bar to rapidly mix the test without swirling, and lights the tube from below with white LEDs to make it easy to see the color change. Speeds up the testing, which is great when you have to test every day or every other day.
