    3 Different test kits...3 different results ??

    I finally got a TF100 kit and started using it a couple of days ago. I'm also still using the Basic K-1001 and Bio Guard Multi Test 1200V kits that I had previously purchased. Figured I might as well use the K-1001 / BG kits up and have the ability to triple check my results while I'm learning. All tests are done using water drawn 10-12" under the surface, in front of the skimmer.

    Here are the results:

    TF100 FC 5.5 (down from 11.5 yesterday !?) Tested twice...
    K-1001 FC 2
    BioGuard FC 2

    The PH on all three is slighly different. All are within the ideal 7.4-7.6 range, but they are different.

    Any thoughts?

    Sure, here are my thoughts ... pick one and trust it
    You will drive yourself crazy trying to compare multiple kits, etc ... especially if 2 of them are color matching tests.

    I would choose the TF-100 myself

    I totally agree with JB. Use the TF-100 and trust it. I assume you used the FAS-DPD test for that number?
