    Live in canada...whats a good test kit to buy?

    What brand of test kit can I get in the Toronto area and who sells it. The current one I have does not seem to be able to give me numbers like I see posted here.

    The only option in canada is the Taylor K-2006.

    Congrats on taking the first step on gaining control of your pool!

    The company that has the exclusive contract for Canada for the Taylor K2006 is VERY expensive. Several other Canadian's have reported being able to purchase off ebay and get it shipped to Canada for a substantial savings.

    Any friends in the US? I buy the TF-100 and have it shipped to them. Each year I get a nice birthday gift. I would have no issues buying the test chemicals in Canada, if the seller wasn't trying to gouge so much. What he charges here should be a criminal offense.
