Do you take the reading from the first slight color change, the full color change or take the average from the 2.

On which kit?
On Calc, Alk and Mg. I don't use any others but was assuming the principle was the same for all Salifert test Kits

Directions say to wait, so I wait. I figure they might know what they are doing, that's why I pay so much for the kits.

Full color change. If after some gentle shaking and a 20 second wait the color isn't a solid expected change, I add another drop to make sure it has completely changed. That is my reading.

This works for alk, ca, and mg.
