Summary
Chlorine testing in bright sunlight
Answer
Chlorine testing in bright sunlight can cause inaccurate measurement because sunlight can react with the DPD indicator during the 3-minute reaction time for total chlorine. It is recommended to keep the sample covered during the reaction time if testing outdoors.
