    Taylor CYA Kit?

    Hi all,

    I'm looking to get a little more detailed in testing and want to find out what my CYA levels are. Never monitored it before, but very curious now (too much lurking here). I have no need for a full kit as I have a handheld pH meter, FC ampoules/Kit. and can titrate anything else at work I need too. I'm looking at the Taylor K1721 as it looks compact, easy to store/transport. I do help one friend with a pool and Don't want to carry loose bottles just for this.

    Just wondered if there is any other kit you might suggest. If not, I will likely order this today. I am likely high from using pucks, but I HAVE to know now.

    Really enjoying the nice forum you have here.

    That's a good kit and so is the K-1720 if you're going to need to run more than a couple of tests.

    A better deal is the CYA test from tftestkits.net. It contains 8oz of R-0013 and the mixing bottle and the view tube for less than the K-1721 which only has 1.5oz of R-0013. All you need to do is go to your local Wally-World and get a fly box in the fishing section to put the parts in and you have a complete kit.

    Whichever of those you go with will work good for you.

    The Pentair CYA kit is also one to look at.

    Bama...I just ordered the reagent replacement set, and I am so glad I got the 8 ounce CYA kit...I am helping my cousin and his wife in thier new home with a new pool get it up and running. I am going to be interested to see how things go because we had a massive storm this weekend and they have been without power since 5 pm Saturday. But I told them I would do their CYA tests until they get their TF kit. She has already been to pool school and picked my brain but I love that I have the 8 ounces so I won't worry about not having enough left for myself when I need to test. YOU CAN"T FIND THAT ANY WHERE ELSE BUT HERE.

    Thanks for all your input. I may make my own as suggested with the Tf kit. I wondered how many tests I could get with these. Obviously more with more reagent. Didncome across the Pentair but will look at it too.
