    Tft 100 cl

    Hello,

    Just wondering is it normal for the CL test in the K1000 part of the TFT 100 to be off a bit?

    Ex. Just did a full test and got 1-2 CL with the K1000 but got FC 4.5 and CC .5 with the drops.

    Trust the FAS-DPD chlorine test.

    The yellow OTO is more of a yes/no there is chlorine type test.

    jblizzle is on target. The reason the k-1000 OTO chlorine test is in the kit is to test...."Yes, I still have chlorine and it's about the same level as yesterday" It is not very precise but it is quick and absolutely reliable.

    Naturally, the FAS/DPD test is the precision test. It's the "flagship"test of TFP, sort of, and what we teach and the way we test often revolves around the really nice accuracy of that test.........it's just a bit time consuming if you are in a rush.

    So would it be totally out of the question to use strips just for daily testing?

    I don't really see the point in the K1000. I can do the fas/dpd test very quickly and it is accurate. Maybe it's just me but I couldn't stand doing a test that just verifies a range of FC. I need to know! Maybe that's just my OCD coming out though

    yeah, but you still need the pH side of the comparing tube eh?

    Re: Tft 100 cl

    Ok I guess my question is what tests do you all do daily and what method? What do you do weekly and what method?

    @ Razorhog I have a bit of OCD too. My wife is always busting my chops about how much I test. lol
