Important notes for using the Marine Care Program Test Kits

  • Before testing clean the glass vials and the large syringe by rinsing it with the water to be tested.
  • After testing rinse all syringes and vials with RO or distilled water before storing. If vials are left unwashed a residue can form that will affect the results of future tests. Use a slightly acidic solution such as citric acid to remove the residue.
  • In order to ensure an accurate drop size always hold reagent bottle vertically above the test vial, and gently squeeze out each drop
  • Close all reagents tightly immediately after use
  • The test reagents are stable up to the date stated on the pack when stored closed
  • Store the reagents and color card in the plastic box to prevent damage from prolonged exposure to light
