    Testing w/ the Taylor K2006

    Quick question I have been testing with the K2006 for a few weeks. This question is a general one but one that I thought about when testing the TA.

    In most cases my initial tests are always using the 25ml amount of pool water. After I tested the TA at with 25ml. I came out to 150. I then decided to do the same test but with the 10ml amount, my results yielded 175.

    Is one of these (25ml vs 10ml) typically more accurate or is this a case where I just average (in a case i run a test multiple times) them and take that.

    That's normal. See extended-test-kit-directions-t25081.html
    The precision of the measurement is plus or minus one drop when up to 10 drops of titrant are used, or plus or minus 10% of the final reading, when more than 10 drops of titrant are used.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Thanks Richard, so in this case with a 150 and a 175, going with a 160 is probably safe.
