    Which of these K-2006 kits?

    I want to get a K-2006 kit, though there are a few listed on this page with slight variations. Can someone please tell me which is the recommended/best one?

    Thanks.

    The one at the top. The C at the end of the others are for "commercial" purposes with more re-agents for some of the tests.

    The best kit is the TF-100 from tftestkits.net ... it comes with more of the reagents you actually need. I think it would be similar to the 2006C

    Here is a comparison of the K2006 and the TF100:

    EDIT: correction. The 2006 comes with all 0.75 oz bottles and the 2006C comes with all 2 oz bottles (most of which you do not need that much)

    Personally I agree with Jason and I've purchased and used both kits. You simply don't get enough of the essential reagents with the K2006.

    The CYA test with the TFT test kit is better. It goes down to 20 instead of 30 and as it uses twice as much sample it is more accurate and easier to use than the one in the K-2006 (although both test vials and the reagent are made by Taylor).
