    I was wondering if someone can help please. I have just purchased the Tropic Marin Phosphate kit and it has 3 droppers a,b and c. The directions in the book tells you to use 10 drops reagent a and then 3 drops reagent b but nowhere does it say anything about reagent c. Am I completely stupid?:1hissyfit:

    You don't normally use reagent C. That is used as a "standard" to confirm if the test kit is still reading correctly... read the gray area in the instruction booklet, above the "directions"

    Hennie is spot on there.
    jumboswart, for a phosphate test kit, you should have rather went for kit like Deltec (0.000) which is more precise, sadly the Tropic Marin P04 test kit isnt, it reads 0.00.
