I did a alkalinity test and it took 8 drops be make it change from green to red except it wasn't really red it was almost inbetween the two colors
like pink .

It took 1 extra drop to make the color rich so do i count it as 9 drop witch equals 90 alkalinity.

Also does rain water have alkalinity in it?Or any other of these testable matters.

Thanks

You want to add drops till the color starts changing to anything kind of red/yellow/clear, then continue adding drops as long as the color continues changing. The final drop, which doesn't change the color any further doesn't count.

Rain water normally has a very low TA, often around 10.

These taylor test kits are amazing.I already want to order the k2006 after using the taylor k1004 for the first week.They are very simple to use and they really give you confidence that you have the right results.
