    Test Kit for Aussies?

    the TF100 cannot be shipped from the US to Oz. What is the equivalent test kit available in Oz?

    I got a 4 in 1 kit with my pool. but the instructions and the little container make no sense. eg list CI in mg/L but all of the literature is in ppm.

    Here is a pic.

    Will Amazon ship down under?

    This seller shows international shipping rates but they seem a bit steep.

    I had been negotiating with an individual in Australia. It did not work out AND I am looking for a partner again. (This just happened on Wednesday)

    So, If you live in Australia and are seriously looking for a business opportunity, I would discuss what I have in mind.

    You should be prepared to develop your own website, etc. I can help with many particulars but this would be an Australian online Pool Supply site that stocks the TF-100 and refills for it. Certainly, this site would branch out to other products but would have the advantage of exclusivity on the TF-100.

    If someone is interested, do not post back here but rather PM me for a better overview and we'll chat on the phone.

    Luckily, for water, mg/L and ppm are equivalent (a litre of water weighs 1000 grams, and a milligram is 1/1000 of a gram).
