    I closed my CO2 valve but my drop checker is still yellow. Is it working?

    Any one has experience using drop checker, pls advise.

    At ease. Your drop checker is measuring your tank, not your CO2 tank. : )

    what brand of your drop checker? Did you use kH = 4 instead of your tank water to dilute the test solution?

    Hello fusion79,

    drop checker reaction is not immediate. i would say 40minutes to 1.5 hours.
    If you want to verify. take it out of the tank for a while, you should see it change to blue or darker green after 5-10 minutes.
