    The 6 bottles that test for T/A and CH are all .75 oz.

    The FAS/DPD is 30ml (1 oz) (at 8-12 drops per test...should last pretty a good while)

    The FAS/DPD powder is 1/4 oz. (it looks tiny, but I've used mine for 3 years and still have quite a bit left)

    CYA reagent - That's the biggest change I made from Taylor or other tests. It 120ml (4 oz) and, using 15 ml per CYA test that's enough for 8 tests. (Anything more than three tests per year is overkill, I think)

    The daily tests are the standard bottles that come in the Taylor k-1000 test kit....3/4 oz. I would've liked to have included slightly larger bottles but that's all that will fit into that neat, little package

    This will be my fourth year using Taylor Chemistry. I have tried to judge the amounts needed based on my past experience. AS I get input from other users, I will try to keep the quantities in ranges where folks can expect a good two years before they need any refills. I think I'm there right now but that is based solely on my usage history.

    Thanks

    If this will help...A drop is about 50 microliter. So around 20 drops per milileter...A 30 ml bottle is about 600 drops per bottle.
