I purchased the Tetra KH and GH kit yesterday.  I am aware that Seattle
water is very soft but geez!! I'm starting to wonder if I'm using the kit

The KH kit says to add the drops until the vial turns light yellow. 
 After 2 drops its clear and then on the third drop I start to see a 
faint "yellow-ish" color.  However, there is no color change 
progression as the instructions indicate.  Is the KH so low that it 
just isn't registering?
