    Does the TF-100 Test Kit also test for Bromine?

    I just discovered this forum and it has a lot of great information. I apologize in advance if this has been asked before, but I couldn't find the information.
    I have both a hot tub and a pool. I use Bromine in the hot tub, so I'd like one test that I would be able to use for both the pool and hot tub.
    Does the TF-100 Test Kit and/or the Taylor K-2006 also test for Bromine? (there was no mention of this in the test kit instructions). If so, would I just follow the same directions as testing for the FC and CC to obtain the respective Bromine levels? Does Bromine also get broken down like chlorine and has the 3 different forms: free bromine, combined bromine, and total bromine?
    Thanks in advance!

    Perform the test as though you were testing for chlorine, then multiply the result by 2.25.
    Or you can get the bromine reagent, R-0872.
    You still are testing combined chlorine with R-0003 though, even with bromine.
