Why is it when I check my FC with the K-1000 kit it will give me a reading on the first drop and by the 5th I’m at 10ppm but when I check with the TF-100 kit witch it tells me I’m at only 2.5 my goal here is to be 5ppm. Just Wondering why the K1000 shows are reading on the first drop.

OTO isn't especially reliable.

That said, the OTO tests total chlorine. Are you testing FC and CC with the FAS-DPD?
