    Pentair R151716 Pro II

    I found this test kit on Amazon, Pentair R151716 Pro II. I went to the Pentair website and the following are tested:

    Free, Total and Combined CL
    Br, Iodine
    pH, Acid Demand, Total Alkalinity,
    Water Hardness and Cyanuric Acid.
    Pro-Design Test Cell features CI range to 10ppm and meets recommended industry standards.

    Is this comparable to the TF-100 and the Taylor K-2006 test kits? The price is amazing if it works.

    I am new to this do your own testing and I already have the TF-100 in the mail but would the Pentair work just as well?

    No, it is not comparable to any of the test kits we recommend. For one, it does not include the FAS-DPD chlorine test, which we consider essential.
