    Proper Disposal of Pool Test Kit/Chemicals

    Just replaced my TF100 test kit with a new batch of refills. How do I properly dispose of the left over test chemicals from last year?

    There was a thread about that a while back. I just pour mine out, but I can't remember what the concensus was.

    I think it was down the drain or in the dirt.

    I don't see any reason why they can't go down the drain. That's where mine goes after testing.
