    Low Range and High Range Testing Kit

    Can anyone please explain to me what the difference is between a Low Range and High Range testing kit? I keep seeing the differences on some pool sites and I'm not sure exactly what makes them different from each other.

    Thank You!

    This is fairly rare in swimming pool test kits. In the test kit industry generally, say you had some parameter that varies from 0 to 100. A low range kit might test from 0 to 10 in steps of 1, while a high range kit might test from 0 to 100 in steps of 10. The actual ranges covered and available precision vary with the test kit.

    It would appear that the low range kits will only work in lower ranges of concentration, like chlorine up to 5 ppm. Save yourself the aggrivation and just pick one off the list of test kits that have been compared.. The TF100 will give you more of the reagents you will need the most. If you feel you must "shop" the net to get a better price, the K2006C is the kit you should be comparing.

    You will save money over the course of a season with the TF100 due to having the reagents you need and not reordering some. Get the XL option and the speedstir.

    If you are going to follow TFPC method you need the right kit. Folks here cant help you unless you can provide the water analysis they need to diagnose the problem.
