    Chlorine level?

    Why does my test kit say 1-3 is the ideal range but TFP says 3-7 is ideal?

    Your test kit doesn't take your CYA level into account at all.

    But if the test only reads up to 5, how do I check for 7 or 10?

    There is a different test to test levels up to 50 or more ppm. It is called an FAS/DPD (just DPD wont do it) test and it is really what you need to manage your pool successfully.

    OK I see where it says that in the TF-100 Test Kit description. Thanks.
