Michael seems to use more solution than what I found necessary to get to 3000 ppm. My testing, along with others, used 12 ml of both ingredients. Again, LaMotte ClO2 test strips will tell you what you have.
Since the test strips won't directly read 3000 ppm, you will need to dilute a sample of your CDS so the test strips can read the ppm. If you are expecting to get 3000 ppm, I would add 1 ml of the CDS to 60 ml of distilled water. If your CDS is 3000 ppm, the color should match the 50 ppm color on the test strip container. So, multiply 60 x 50 = 3000. That is 1 part in 60 or 1:60 ratio.
Be sure to read the instructions on the LaMotte container as what you saw in the video is not quite correct. It says to DIP (don't stir, just dip and wait 2 seconds) a strip in the diluted solution for 2 full seconds (say, 1 thousand one, 1 thousand 2) and WITHOUT FLICKING OFF ANY SOLUTION ON THE STRIP, WAIT 10 SECONDS, then do the color matching.
For me, I can discern color changes better at the 50 color on the container.
Also, I suggest you use distilled water for testing as I have gotten wrong readings when using tap water. Who knows what's in your tap water!
jj, I forgot to mention that when you dilute 1 ml of your CDS into 60 ml of distilled water, it is important to throughly mix the solution so the 1 ml of CDS is evenly distributed throughout the solution or you may not get an accurate reading.
I forgot to do that once and got a ppm reading that was unexpected. Then I remembered that I had forgotten to stir the solution! So, I stirred it and remeasured the ppm and then it was what I was expecting.
I have a question about dosing. I've looked on the forum and can't seem to find the answer.
I've been taking a maintenance dose of 6 drops daily of MMS1 for quite some time and adjust for a cold, etc. If I'm making CDS at 3000ppm (overnight method) would I still take 6 drops mixed with water? Is the dosing 1:1 for CDS to MMS1?
Also, I noticed on an older post that your dose your cat. I also have a cat that is an indoor/outdoor cat who is a HUNTER and I treat regularly for fleas and tapeworm. I love the critter and it would be great if CDS would help with these issues. Blackie is 11.7 lbs...would the CDS be helpful for these problems? If so, how often and what dose would you suggest? His weight does fluctuate a little...sometimes he's around 10.5 lbs also.
