    noob question...

    Im in the process of shocking the pool. I bought the test from leslies that was recommended, but it only measures FC up to 5. I had to take in a test sample to Leslie's to determine when I got to FC 16 as recommmended. I want to do the overnight test, however I can't exactly do the test if I can't read the FC that high. Does either of the other recommended test go high enough on the FC to measure FC at the higher levels? I searched and read the info on both tests but couldnt determine if they go that high.

    Yup...sorry to say, but leslies sold you a DPD complete kit, not the FAS-DPD kit as recommended by TFP. The FAS DPD kit can measure FC up to 50ppm

    No worries, looks like I can get the test by itself from tftestkits then. Don't mind spending the money as long as it does what I need it to do.

    Sorry, forgot to mention that. The stand-alone kit from Tftestkits.net would be a great addition to your kit

    Welcome to TFP, Mags!!

    You'll never regret ordering from TFTestkits I did the same thing you're going to do (get the FAS-DPD to make my 2005K = to a 2006K), the price was great and I had it 2 days after I ordered it
