    SLAM w/k2005 test kit?

    Is this possible? I don't have the other (better) kit. I appreciate and am aware of the need to get the additional test (FD?), but my am curious if it is possible.

    Thanks to all responses, including those whose response is - just go get the other kit

    If you can get just the FAS/DPD chlorine test that will allow you to test the higher chlorine levels you need to complete a slam. You can try and use dilution to get an estimated FC level but it won't be very accurate.

    The normal answer is no, but you're in Canuckistan where decent test kits at reasonable prices are hard to find. There was one recent thread where someone found a source for Taylor test reagents up your way. Water testing Reagents Canada

    Going back a bit... I posted this a while ago based on my own observations. Blinding yellow is about 10. School bus yellow is about 12-13. Hunter orange is around 18, up around 25 it starts to look pumpkin orange. I never went any higher than that, but it's been reliably reported that it eventually will turn brown if you get high enough.

    Thanks both. Will see if I can mess around with it. May test a few colours with known chlorine concentrations or something along those lines...
