    Stupid Question

    So, I'm getting ready to convert from baqua and it says to raise FC to 15...I ordered (haven't received yet) Taylor k-2006 kit. What one am I going to use to measure? I ask because there seems to be 3 different types of chlorine. FC, CC and Total

    I understand that but will there be an FC test in the kit? I bought it because it seemed to be highly recommended on this site but the site I got it from didn't seem to have a very detailed description of what it included.

    It should be one test for both I believe. First you test for FC the add some regents and test for CC. Check out this thread: Extended Test Kit Directions

    You will be using the FAS-DPD test. It uses reagents R-0870 and R-0871 and R-003.

    Same test as the K-2006, might be a different test tube.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
