Cl - 24 drops x 10 (25 ml) = 240 ppm Cl

SO4 - 5 ml sample + 5 ml diluent 100 ppm x 2 = ~150-200 ppm

Ca hardness - upper line 30 drops x 10 = 300 ppm Ca as CaCO3
320 x 0.4 = 128 ppm Ca

Total hardness - upper line 38 drops x 10 = 380 ppm total hardess as CaCO3

Alkalinity - 25 ml 14 drops x 10 = 140 ppm total alkalinity as CaCO3
