    Re: Test high Chlorine levels

    You need the FAS-DPD chlorine test. This is really the key test to taking control of your pool.

    If you already have Taylor tests for pH, TA, CH and CYA, you can order it separately here: ... t-p47.html

    Or get the TF100 from the same place.

    EDIT: looks like you already ordered the TF100 ... so you will be good to go!!!
