    Daily Chlorine Test Kit, Which One?

    So the TF-100 comes with the Taylor K-1000 Chlorine/pH kit for daily testing, which is the OT method. For about the same price, the K-1001 kit does the same test (although, I guess it's FC, instead of TC), using the DPD method. Which would be better to get, considering I will already have the FAS/DPD comprehensive test when needed?

    The OTO test (T-1000) is always able to detect the presence of chlorine, the DPD bleaches out above 10 ppm. I would use the OTO or FAS-DPD (not DPD) for daily measurements.

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    An OTO test in fine for everyday testing when you need to just detect the presence of chlorine, or less than 5 ppm. Use FAS/DPD test for higher and more accurate testing, as well as OCLT when needed.

    Thanks, guys, I'll just go with the OTO test then. Seems easier to do as well.
