Is that the question?

I took it on a Friday and wasn't tested until Tuesday. Did a repeat on Thursday and still no results

Is the urine still good and why too diluted it's either pos or neg????

OK

So if you drink a lot of water before the test, there is something in the urine called specific gravity, along with other measurements, that show this fact. The sample is then determined to be to dilute.

They fail you on the test because the test is not valid with too dilute a sample.

That is why they said this.

If you did not drink a lot of water before the test on the second test,,,,, then it will not be rejected.

Many people try to "wash" a drug out of the system by drinking excessive amounts of fluid. The testing detects this, and disqualifies the sample.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Why taking so long I'm afraid the urine has set too long for accuracy?

No that is not a problem.

Urine can sit for days, and if refrigerated for weeks, and can still be tested.

That is not going to be a problem.
