    Taylor CYA reagent

    Hi All....I ran out of CYA reagent in my TFT-100. Can I substitute the Taylor reagent that Leslie pools sells ? Thanks.

    In Pool School there is a thread that compares test kits, and it says the TF-100 uses all taylor reagents so I don't see why not?

    Yes, it's the same reagent.

    They give a ridiculously small amount compared to the other tests. Now I know the CYA is the most stable but come on there is like enough for three tests total!

    Brian, I assume you are talking about the Taylor K-2006.

    The TF-100 I put together has enough CYA reagent for 8 full tests. If you are clever and know your CYA is above 40 or so, you can mix 1/2 the amount called for in the the test and get 14-16 tests.

    You are correct in that CYA should be an infrequently tested parameter. Some folks test twice yearly......I do it about three-four times on average.

    All of the TF-100 chemistry is Taylor chemistry BUT it is not all compatible. Make sure your Taylor reagent numbers match mine if you are ordering to replace reagents in your Taylor kit....(Please do, I'm cheaper and faster )

    Exactly what is the ratio of CYA reagent to water?

    Oh sure, now you tell me.

    I guess I'm just not clever.
