    Is Taylor R-0002 same as R-0871

    I ran out of my R-0871 from my Taylor K-2006 and went to LPS and they did not have any but had R-0002 in the 2oz size and said it was the same. So, any thoughts. Is it the same?

    R-0002 is used for the DPD chlorine test (which also uses R-0001 and R-0003) not the FAS-DPD chlorine test which uses the R-0870, R0871, and R-0003.

    You have once again confirmed that the collective knowledge of a majority of pool store employees is significantly lacking.

    Yes... LPS USELESS. Glad I found this site only 2 weeks after pool was built.

    Similar questions comes up from time to time about Taylor products.

    If the Taylor numbers are not identical, then neither are the products and I can think of none that can be interchanged.
