    Need 15 (FC) but kit only goes to 10- Am I doing something wrong?

    Iím converting from Baquacil and the instructions stateto set target FC goal of 15 and test frequently bumping that number back up to15.

    However, I have the Taylor K-2005 kit and it only goes to10??? Iím confused because how can I know if itís at 15ppm?

    Here are the directions to convert from Baquacil where itstates 15 FC Pool School - Convert Your Baqua Pool to Chlorine

    The instructions state:
    1. Rinse and fill small comparator tube to 9 mLmark with water to be tested
    2. Add 5 drops R-0001 and 5 drops R00002. Cap andinvert to mix
    3. Match color with color standard. Record as partsper million (ppm) free chlorine (FC)

    Here is the tester I have

    The K-2005 is a DPD Chlorine test and as you have discovered only goes to 10 ppm.

    You need a FAS-DPD Chlorine test like this one at TFTestkits.net

    Ahhh. that's not good. Do local pool stores usually carry FAS-DPD ones? I called Leslies and they said no
