    Test kits in Canada

    A quick note to let others know of a place that sells Taylor test kits and reagents in Canada.
    Water & Ice North America Inc in Cambridge ON.gt
    http://www.waterandice.ca/

    I have twice ordered reagent refills without any problems and they shipped it out quickly.

    How long did it take them to respond to you? I sent them an email on Tuesday asking about buying Taylor reagents, and haven't heard back yet.

    Looks good! Just a note: they don't appear to sell the K-2006 just the K-2005. But they do list the FAS/DPD kit, too so that will work.

    Padlock, they responded next day, but I guess this may be busy time of year.

    Thanks jorivesud! That is close for me! Seems like it is now getting easier to find the Taylor products in Canada, now, if only the prices would come down...

    Seriously? They list the Taylor K-2006 kit at $295 CDN. That is compared to $99 US online from Amazon.com. It does appear as if it's possible to order from Amazon.com into Canada (at $128 CDN). Would there be any problems importing "chemicals" into Canada from the US via the postal service?

    Re: Test kits in Canada

    I've shopped for and got a Taylor K-2006 just a few days ago (August 11th) on amazon.

    Here are Amazon links for the


    Both show as not eligible for international shipping, but domestic shipping (within the US) was free of charge.

    I had mine (K-2006) shipped to a 'Border Mail Depot Service' across the border in the US, where I picked it up myself, and declared it fully crossing back into Canada. The customs agent told us these products are legal in Canada and let us through, but he did perceive PST. My total cost was around 90CDN - to boot, I filled up my gas tank and struck a small saving there as well

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Test kits in Canada

    I received the following yesterday in the mail:

    Taylor K-2006-6

    I ordered it on August 16, it shipped from New Hampshire August 19 and arrived in my mailbox on August 30. At the time, it was only $99.99 CDN, but considering the price to buy in Canada or from the States in USD (and then the hassle of getting it back here), I think the $139.99 price is reasonable still.

    I plan on reordering reagent refills from Aquatech Logistics in Mississauga, though. It's close enough that driving there once a year is no big deal and the prices aren't bad.
