Drop Checker Info

I just bought a glass bulb drop checker that didn't come with instructions. From what I read I need to fill the bulb with distilled water, add some 4dkh solution and add a drop of PH reagent. Is that correct?

How much 4dkh do I use, does the water need to be distilled, and how much reagent?

There is no need for distilled water. All you need is some 4dkh solution and the ph reagent. Just put a few ml of 4dkh and a couple drops of the ph reagent in your dc and just swirl it so they mix. You can also put some reagent into your bottle of solution and have it premixed for you. Should be a dark blue when you mix them together.
