    Test kit in Canada?

    Hi everyone, my first full summer with a pool after moving last August. Learning a bunch from the site, what a great help.

    I tried to track down a Talyor test Kit K2006, and the local place is $177!

    Can't ship the recommended kits to Canada from what I have seen, so am at a loss.
    Are there any kit options in Canada that are more reasonable. I did find the K2006 out of stock in Montreal (I am Toronto area) for $129, still too much.

    Still relying on pool store tests for now.

    16x32 vinyl
    80,000L chlorine
    21" Hayward sand filter

    Try Piscines Apollo Pools, for example. It's $123 and may be what you found in Montreal. I don't think you'll find the kit for much less than that because of the exclusive distribution agreement Taylor has with Lowry & Associates and the costs of import.
    16,000 gallon outdoor in-ground 16'x32' plaster pool; Pentair Intelliflo VF pump; Pentair IntelliTouch i9+3s control system; Jandy CL-340 square foot cartridge filter
    12 Fafco solar panels; Purex Triton PowerMax 250 natural gas heater (200,000 BTU/hr output); automatic electric pool safety cover; 4-wheel pressure-side "The Pool Cleaner"

    I just went through searching for a cheaper place to buy a K2006 in Canada and ordered from Piscine Apollo, my local store wanted 260$ for at 147 i would've considered it since Apollo
    is temporarily out of stock and is expecting more in about 10 days as of yesterday.
