API KH Test Kit

So, does anyone know how to perform the KH test kit? Or whatever lol..

It took me 10 drops to make the water go from blue to bright yellow. Anyone know what that means? I lost the instructions to the KH part.. which is why i'm asking.

Send a message via ICQ to ccCapt
1 drop = 1 dKH
Count how many drops from blue to yellow (not bright yellow).

Same with the GH tests. You can find online converters.

The number of drops = dKH or dKH. To convert from dKH or dGH (what you understand to be number of drops) to ppm, multiply by 17.8. To reverse just devide.

Just a side note 1ppm = 1mg/L

Please tell me what KH and GH stand for. I can't find it listed anywhere? Thanks.
