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
