I am following the directions on their website.The thing is I am also following the instruction on the tests for API and according to Dr. Timms test kits are inaccurate. So do i adjust the reading or do I not follow their instructions and make the solution match the tests? If I need to adjust the results of the API tests how do I do it?
Right now I am doing a combination of the two.The instructions say to dose to 3ppm but the solution doses to 2ppm if you add a drop per gallon so I added 38(number of gallons)+ half the number of gallons to bring it to 3 ppm
.The ammonia tested at 1ppm so I add 2ppm to make three.
