    Taylor kit, impossible to buy in the netherlands?

    Since a short while the owner of a arctic spa and in research of more information about how to balance the water i stumbled over TFP.
    I tried the teststrips, they don't really work. Very hard to determine the correct values.
    So i decided to purchase a liquid test kit and set my mind on a TF100. Big disapointmend, nowhere to buy.
    Does anyone succeeded in buying the TF-100 in the Netherlands?

    The TF-100 is only sold by one company in the US. It might be possible to have one shipped to you, but may not be very economical.

    Jup, you can't find them here. I was lucky someone offered it to buy for me and ship to Nl, but it's not cheap since you pay US shipping costs + shipping to NL .. and now I hope I won't be charged with some import taxes or something like that.
    If I read the ducht/neglian forums, they mostly use the normal tests where you compare the color.

    Hope you can find a solution to import, perhaps someone from the forum here is willing to help you ? Unfortunate for you, mine is allready being shipped otherwise we could have split shipping costs.

    Re: Taylor kit, impossible to buy in the netherlands?

    Best bet would probably be to look for a local-ish Taylor dealer:

    Export to countries other than Canada are handled through established trading partners, whether
    international branches of established domestic accounts; global manufacturing partners offeri
    ng co-op branded products; or domestic firms specializing in export assistance. To select your best alternative,
    contact our Customer Service Team at 1-800-837-8548
    https://www.taylortechnologies.com/c...stributors.pdf

    The TF-100 uses Taylor reagents but provides differently sized bottles of each reagent to best match what you'll need for following TFP. The Taylor kits work the same way but you'll run out of some reagents sooner than others and need to buy refills for those.

    I wonder what big pools in The Netehrlands use to test their chemicals? The public pools, the saunas, etc... Surely they have accurate testing methods, right?
    By the way, edwin2014, I could offer to ship the TF-100 for you, I have a Dutch husband and we still have a Rabobank where you could reinburse shipping costs. PM me if you are interested.

    I did some google search, and it appears they use loviblond method with tablets.
