    Re: Best place to get TF-100 test kits

    Sorry, but no. It is only available from either TFTestkits.net (the manufacturer) or Pool Supply World in California Water Testing - TFTestkit TF-100 Seven Test Kit - TF-100

    Both have a minimum purchased for free shipping, TFT is $80 and PSW is $100

    If you have a clear pool and are not,going to SLAM I highly recommend the SpeedStir which would push you over the $80 free shipping at TFTestkits.net

    Re: Best place to get TF-100 test kits

    Hello I'm a UK fan too, Goooo Cats lol ,

    Not that I'm aware of, but someone else might chime on free shipping on them, but it's highly unlikely. The cheapest place you can get it from is TF Test Kits, and they also charge the cheapest shipping necessary to get it, and all other items, from their store to your house.

    Only a couple of places sell them, and If any of the others offered free shipping (but like I said I know of none that does on that particular kit), their price would be higher to make up the difference. That's is an awesome kit, and you won't be sorry you ordered one even if it does cost a little bit more to get it to your house.

    Have a Wonderful Night.

    As tim said you might want to add on a speed stir to put the price up to minimum for free shipping. Check out the posts on it. The reviews are awesome. http://www.troublefreepool.com/threa...gnetic-stirrer

    Re: Best place to get TF-100 test kits

    I believe the TF-100 with XL option is $80.95. Just enough to get free shipping @ tftestkits.net.
    I'd also recommend the SpeedStir.

    Re: Best place to get TF-100 test kits

    Thanks guys! I haven't seen the minimum option for the free shipping on those sites yet, but I will look again. Either way at 80 or 100 I will meet the option for price. I will have salt water system, so should I use the Taylor testing, or the strips? The strips are cheaper.

    Re: Best place to get TF-100 test kits

    The purchase of the TF-100 (being the *best* kit out there) at $68 plus shipping is *STILL* cheaper than free pool store testing where you walk out with $200 of over priced or unnecessary chemicals.

    i believe the free shipping offer has expired for this year. Even so, it's still the better deal in the long run.

    I thought they brought it back. But I could be wrong. Call in the AM and ask

    Whoops.......another question? What are the little pills that go with the stirrer? How many do you get and how long do they last? Should I order extra amount of those?

    you get one with the SpeedStir. I did get a backup but if you are careful one will suffice. They will last forever or until you loose it. It is just a vinyl covered magnet.

    Get an extra and you'll be able to run more tests before having to move it around between tubes. Just convenient to have an extra, IMO.
    I've accidentally tossed two out and lost them (grrrrr) when dumping the tests into the yard to rinse out the tubes.

    Re: Best place to get TF-100 test kits

    Here is the link for the stir bars: http://tftestkits.net/Magnetic-Stirring-Bar-1-p68.html

    I order 1 of these for chlorine only: http://tftestkits.net/Graduated-Cyli...-only-p22.html

    And I think 3 of these for everything other than chlorine so I don't have to wash the cylinder in between samples:
