    Can I use R-0013 with Rainbow CYA Test Kit?

    I have a Pentair Rainbow Cyanuric Acid Test Kit #79 (see picture below). I find the larger tube with the sliding dot much easier to use than the one with my TF-100 kit.

    So, I am needing more reagent for this kit. I am wondering if I can buy R-0013 reagent from TFTestkits for use with the Rainbow test kit?

    According to the msds and info I can find here and on the web it's the same stuff. Look at the graduations on the kit and if they're the same as the TF-100 vial it'll be fine to use R-0013.

    I am not familiar with the Pentair CYA test kit, but I do know that several of the non-Taylor kits use a different concentration of the test reagent. They use the same chemical but a different strength, which affects the length of the view tube. A Taylor R-0013 compatible CYA test has right around 3 inches from the black dot to the 30 ppm line. If that one is also around 3", then it is compatible.
