    llooking at the color card that comes with it. do you mean that the reading you get is 3.6? if so you probably have high alk. how high is hard to say, its not the best test kit to use.

    is this your read out card ur using?

    i would get an API alk test, they are a little more accurate and easier to figure out what your alk might be.
