    What to add to a K-2005 test kit

    My pool builder included a Taylor K-2005 test kit with my new pool. I see that the K-2006 is recommended. Does anyone know what tests I may be missing with having the K-2005 instead of the K-2006. I'm assuming it will be cheaper to add what I need then buy a whole new test kit but if I need to do that please let me know. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    It is missing the FAS-DPD chlorine test (not to be confused with the DPD chlorine test).

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    You might as well add a speedstir now and save shipping when you order one later. No one who owns one regrets buying it.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'll order both. What is the difference between the DPD chlorine test I have now and the FAS-DPD is the difference that I can measure higher levels of FC?

    And it is more accurate as you are counting drops to get a color change from pink to clear and not trying to match a shade of pink ... and it will measure the FC and CC separately.
