    Previous owner left a test kit, what reagents can I use from it?

    Just bought a new house and the previous owners left a 5 way test kit from Home Depot:http://www.homedepot.com/p/Pool-Shop...3227/100193742

    Bottles 1 and 2 are OTO and Phenol red, so I know I can use them for daily testing. Trying to figure out what bottles 3, 4, and 5 are, and if I can use them with my TF-100.

    Bottle 3 says count drops for acid demand and alkalinity test.
    Bottle 4 use one drop for chlorine neutralizer.
    Bottle 5 use one drop for total alkalinity test.

    None of the bottles actually say what is inside them. I am more curious than anything to know what is in them.

    Are they Taylor reagents? If not, they are not likely easily compatible.

    4 may be similar to r0007.

    Do you know how old the kit is and how it was stored? If not, throw it away and use the TF-100.

    Not made by Taylor, not as far as I can tell anyway. Not sure how old they are but the were stored correctly.

    I'm just going to toss all of them except for the OTO and phenol red.

    Thanks Jason
