    TF100 kit: Which reagents do you run out the quickest?

    Title says it all. R-0870 and R-0871 seem to be the ones I use the most in just 2 days of having this kit. Did I just answer my own question? ha

    If you test daily with the FAS-DPD test, you should get the XL version of the kit. Other than that, I never run out of anything before two years are up, at which point I replace the whole set.

    That's why there's the XL option! It's for SLAMmers like you.

    I actually blow through the R-0012 pretty fast. When CH starts to approach 4 digits, it takes a lot of drops!

    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.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
