    which ph/chlorine kit is in the tftest kits?

    What the kit included in tftest kits for ph and chlorine? The one with the double plastic gauge?

    Is it a Taylor?
    24' x 52" AGP = 13.5k gallons
    Dynamo 2.0 HP pump,Sand Dollar sand filter
    Polaris 65 vacuum (good when there are a ton of leaves on bottom), Pool Rover Jr. (LOVE it, but power box dead right now), AquaCritter (an excellent suction side cleaner)

    That one is included, and it's made by Taylor, but you also get the FAS-DPD chlorine test which is a key piece. It's a color change test, from pink to clear, so there's no interpretation, and it can test chlorine, IIRC to 50ppm so you can see what's going on when you shock.

    Dave, you have the FAS-DPD test too, don't you?

    As John T mentioned above...the key chlorine test in the TF100 is the FAS-DPD test. The Taylor k1000 measures PH and TC...but IMHO is good for checking the presence of chlorine not measuring the level ....can never tell the shades of yellow apart.
