Now! Two SampleSizer Measuring Tools Available
Many Taylor specialty tests are done with either a 25-mL or 10-mL water sample in our 9198 sample tube. For instance, the FAS-DPD chlorine test, the EDTA chelant test, and the saltwater test for pools equipped with chlorine generators.
Using our nifty tool, you won't need to flick off the excess water to get the meniscus of the sample water to rest precisely on the fill line. Simply lower the SampleSizer® 10 & 25 mL (6190) into the 9198 test vial filled with the water to be tested. It will displace exactly the right amount to leave the correct volume to perform the test—either 25 mL or 10 mL, depending on which end of the tool goes in first. The SampleSizer is removed once the extra water is splashed out.
The 6190 also can be used in the large tube of our just-released 2000 Series™ color comparators 9056, 9057, and 9058 (see article above) to get proper sample volumes for the total alkalinity and calcium hardness tests. Resizing the comparator made this possible. While we were at it, we created a second measuring tool—the SampleSizer® 44 mL (6191)—to make it easy to get the correct volume for the pH test. 2000 Series kit sellers and owners take note: neither SampleSizer will work correctly in comparator blocks manufactured before April 2012.
