Fastest Alkalinity Instructions

Someone gave me a fastest alkalinity test kit and it has no instructions and no color comparer thingy. Could someone give me the instructions and tell me what color it should be.

PS. I agree that I need a new one, but I would like to check it, since I have one on hand now.

Ok. I found the instructions!

I do have another question though. Why test for alkalinity. If you are not having a PH problem should you test?

it is a measurement of buffering capacity. when your buffer drops is when pH can get screwy
