    Taylor Complete FAS-DPD K-2006

    Found the above "Subject" test kit on E-bay for $57.95 with free shipping. Is that a good price?

    Any preferred seller you all can recommend to purchase such a kit? Have been depending on a local pool store for my water chemistry, but it is not working out. Have the time and need to take this project on myself. Look forward to some advice/recommendation. Thanks.

    Sounds like a decent price, but beware. They only give you enough reagent for maybe 4 CYA tests.

    A TF100 costs more, but comes with larger quantities. And a bigger box, which will hold extra tubes and a speedstir. I know this firsthand.

    Either kit uses the same tests, same reagents.

    tftestkits.net also sells the K2006 ... slightly cheaper although have to add shipping. Check out their prices for both kits ... the owner of this forum also runs that business ... So support is appreciated if you like the forum.

    Go ahead and get the bigger kit. You can find the link to the tests kits in my siggy. You WILL end up paying more in the end due to having to order and pay shipping on the refills if you buy the smaller kits.

    It uses a spinning magnet shaped like a pill that you drop inside of the liquid to constantly stir. It is nice for the tests where you have to add a lot of drops, it makes it much easier mix.

    the speedstir fits inside the k-2006 box.

    Speedstir - something that isn't needed, but you must have! It really helps make testing easier.
