    so i have this IO cal. test kit. it comes with 2 vials. one big, one small. you are supposed to use the small one to retrieve the correct amt. of water to put into the larger vial. i lost the smaller vial. i was wondering if anyone uses this same kit and if there were some way to measure the correct amt. of water i need for this test, perhaps in ml or something. i would really appreciate it if some one could do this for me. thanks.

    You might as well chuck it.IO kits really aint worth the plastic that package them in.
    Save some money and pick up an API calcium kit.Their not the best on the market,but at least they'll get you close.
