    Test kit first usage

    I received my test kit yesterday. I have read pool school and the test kit instructions.
    My problem is for chlorine testing it says to use " Chlorine only" graduated vial. I dont see one! There IS a graduated thing but not labeled "Chlorine only".
    Am I missing something?

    Welcome!

    What kit do you have? If it's the TF100, there should be two vials. The K-2006 isn't that generous, I don't believe.

    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.

    There should be two vials. One will have a sticker on it. If not, use the one you have and contact Dave. I'm sure he'll make good on it if you got shorted.

    Thank you again.
    No, Dave sent correctly. I realized I ordered the mini version, TF 50. Must be a last minute decision of mine since in my mind the standard size is firmly planted!
    Ok I am good now!!

    There's no difference in Test Vials. The FAS/DPD tends to darken the tube after awhile, thus the reason they included a separate one just for that test. After some time you may tend to see a difference in the tube, but it won't affect the test results at all.
