    Taylor K-2006 Test Kit Question

    New to testing my water but based on recommendations purchased a Taylor K-2006 test kit. When testing the chlorine the directions offer a choice of using either a 10 ml or 25 ml sample. I understand the sample size will determine the drop equivalence but was hoping to get your opinion which sample size will give me a more accurate reading or all else equal is this a non issue? Thanks in advance for your opinion.

    25 ml sample will give you accuracy plus/minus .2 PPM. 10 ml sample is to .5, which is plenty good for almost everyone. It also saves reagent.

    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.

    Thanks Rich, "assumed" that was the case but wanted to get the opinion of people who have been at it for for a while now.

    Like Richard said the 10 ml .5 ppm per drop sample size is the right choice for almost everyone, as it is likely you may find over .2 ppm variation from one sample to another depending on where in your pool it was taken.

    The 25 sample is for commercial pools that run much lower FC levels.

    Use 10. There is no need for the added resolution in stabilized (CYA) pools.
