Hi,
I've been using the K-2006 Taylor for 3 years; renewed the FC and PH reagents this year.
I test with 10ml water sample, 2 drops R0871 per ppm. Instructions say "2 dippers of R0870 powder" but with only a 10ml sample the powder does not completely dissolve.
Is it OK to use just one dipper for the 10 sample size? Results seem the same.

OTHER: I test Borate with the LaMotte strip. Results seem hard to see the difference between values. IsThere any better easy test these days?

THANKS! to TFP for perfect, clear water all the time.
