    K-2006 : how high can it (accurately) measure FC?

    Just curious, what is the highest FC that the Taylor K-2006 test kit can measure? I checked out 'Test Kits Compared,' searched the forum, and searched google, and could not find a definitive answer. Thanks guys!

    The FAS/DPD test (in the Taylor K-2006 and the TF100) can test FC up to about 50PPM

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Thanks! I actually looked at that comparison chart right before posting, but somehow missed the comments section where it says 50ppm!

    Actually, I have used the FAS/DPD test found in both the K-2006 and the TF-100 and found it perfectly accurate at 74.0ppm, I know that's not very practical for our purposes but my friend had a pool that was actually that high. Yikes!!
