    The FAS-DPD test is good at FC levels up to at least 50. Stopping at 23 drops just means that your FC level is 12 or higher, which makes sense. You need to keep adding drops until it turns clear.

    The only way to test for CC is to complete the FC test first.

    Wait for the FC level to come down to 10 or lower and then test the PH again. High FC levels can lead to incorrect PH readings.
