    New Complete FAS-DPD chlorine K-2006 Test Kit

    I just received my new Taylor K-2006 Test Kit. Oh My!!!! Looks cool but right now my head is spinning just reading the instructions for testing my chlorine Previously I have only had the hth test kit that you just add drops and it figures chlorine.

    Somebody please help me!!!!!

    1) I don't understand: NOTE: For 1 drop = .2 ppm, use 25 mL sample. For 1 drop = 0.5 ppm, use 10 mL sample.

    2) So once I figure out #1 above, then I first test and get results for FC. Then I follow steps, test, and get results for CC. ....Don't I just have to record FC in the pool calculator? Is it necessary to follow addl steps to get number for CC?

    3) I haven't read past the Chlorine test, but I really hope it gets a little easier. I may be back with more questions.

    Just all seems a little overwhelming right now. Sorry if I seem quite ignorant and thanks so much for any help offered.

    If you fill the chlorine tube to 10ml, when you add the R-0871 each drop indicates 0.5 ppm FC. If you fill the tube to the 25ml mark, each drop represents 0.2ppm FC. Stick with the 10ml sample.

    Do I need to test for CC along with FC? The pool calculator only records the FC?

    If your water is clean and clear, probably not. If you have doubts, you can do the CC test after the FC test.

    If I am doing the FAS-DPD chlorine test anyways, I always also do the CC test since it usually reads <0.5 ppm, but if it doesn't , I want to know. It takes very little time and reagent.
    TFP Expert who uses Pool School and my TF100 test kit along with PoolMath for my: Round 11K gallon AGP with deep end, 20" sand filter, Matrix 1hp 2spd, 6 2ftX20ft solar panels (and solar cover!), Intex SWCG (copper bars disconnected) and a Rubadub hot tub (chlorine). 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.
