    Not if you have the FAS-DPD test that we recommend that is part of the TF-100. That can test up to 50ppm and is an integral part of the TFP philosophy.

    You have a tf-100 and it has the FAS/DPD test supplies in it.

    Yes, I do have the TF-100. I have not done a FAS/DPD test yet. Should I be doing this if FC PPM is greater than 5. I guess this is the right test to run over 5ppm. Thanks!

    Yes, that's what you need for higher numbers.

    Right on, it'll measure up to 50ppm.
