    The TF-100 uses Taylor chemicals. I use a K2006 for all my testing needs. I believe the TF-100 has more of the reagents you use the most.

    An excellent choice. The best you can do in Canuckistan.

    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!

    Thanks for posting! I just ordered the same because I found your post. Can you tell me how long it took you to receive your kit?

    Another question, were you charged any taxes/customs/duties?

    Went to the local pool store yesterday. They only sell test strips to the public. But now that I have my own kit I noticed that they have all the Taylor reagents behind their counter. I asked about them and they won't sell them. Guess they use them for the pools they maintain.

    I found a shop in North York that sells Taylor reagents but they don't have the FAS-DPD chlorine reagents on the shelves, just the OTO or whatever plus the red pH stuff, etc. But the store manager said to email him with the exact reagent numbers and he will get back to me. I will let you know the result. Their prices didn't seem to outrageous for the stuff on the shelves.

    Don't be surprised if the FAS-DPD reagents are significantly more $ than the "normal" reagent they have on the shelves.

    Just ordered the FAS-DPD reagents from eBay. Seems to be the cheapest way for us Canadians.
