What exactly is 1ml considered in a Salifert syringe?
+1 ....do you have the plastic tip on there ...i get about twice the air thats in yoursTechnically the first one is right. You dont' worry about the waterline, just the plunger.
That is not the correct syringe for drawing tank water. There should be a 5 ml that was supplied with the kit. That syringe in your picture is 1 ml and used for the test solutionno yellow plastic tip.
instructions say to begin by drawing 4ml of your tank water & put in test-tube.....i didnt know if you account for the air-bubble or not.
so i'm guessing Example #1 is correct. you always read the black line on the plunger & IGNORE the air-bubble.
....then I got "jipped"There should be a 5 ml that was supplied with the kit. That syringe in your picture is 1 ml and used for the test solution
thats not salifert ...the marks on those glass tubes aren't very accurateYea my test kit came with 6 glass tubes that have a 5 ml mark on them and a plastic cap.
