Ahh, I gotcha. I thought you were saying that the 70 drops was going to give you a 14 dKh
. I must've misread it.
Just for shiggles I measured the volume for drops and 70 drops gives a 10.6 dKh
measurement. That's why I said "roughly" 0.01mL / drop. Not that it matters.
However, to get my point across this is straight from the red sea site:

And so we are on the same page; here's the definition of accuracy "The accuracy of a measurement is how close a result comes to the true value."
So assuming that you are measuring a reference solution with a known value of 4dKh you will get somewhere between 3.86 and 4.14 if you take the statement by red sea by its literal meaning.
