    Welcome to TFP!

    I recommend using chlorine rather than pristine blue. To switch to chlorine you start by getting a copper level test result. Depending on how high your copper level is you may need to replace water or use a sequestrant, or you might be able to simply start using chlorine without any conversion process.

    does the tf100 test kit test for copper?

    No, the TF100 does not include a copper test. TFTestKits.net does carry a copper test as a separate item, the Taylor K-1730.

    Thanks. Just ordered the test kits and will get back to you after pool is opened and I have copper level number to report.
