    Buying bulk test kit refills

    Is there any reason to not buy larger quantity refils for my K-2006 kit? I am SLAMing now, and have already run out of the CYA reagent, and getting close to being out of the FAS-DPD reagent. I found 16 oz bottles of each on sale at poolpartsonline for very cheap (R-0871 for $20, and R-0013 for $8), also going to pick up another bottle of the DPD powder for $7. Is that ok to do, or?

    That is fine. Just make sure to always store them in a cool/dry place away from sunlight. Some of those reagents, especially R-0013, are fairly dependable for quite a long time.

    I would have used tftestkits.net, but they do not sell larger size bottles, and buying the 2oz bottles is still very expensive compared to a 16oz bottles
