Has anyone ever used or compared the new Taylor TTI 2000/3000 to the results to the accuracy of the TF100 or K2006? I was just surfing on their website and saw it, and wondered if it lived up to the Taylor rep we all swear by. I know the colorq is not consistent, but considering the price tag of the new Taylor meter maybe there is hope yet for a colorimeter. I currently have a LaMotte Mobile Spin Lab (also not a cheap gadget), which is very very handy and quick, that I am in the process of testing against the TF100 and K2006 once I get a little more experience on the drops. I am finding that some tests line up almost exactly and some vary between the two. I have found that I rather enjoy this water testing stuff, oddly enough, and will ultimately end up using what ever is best. Right now I am just having fun testing both against each other. However if the new Taylor TTI is as accurate as the drops seem to be, then I may sell my Spin lab in favor of that.
Once I get more comfortable with the drop testing I may start asking for help and opinions (maybe even samples from you all that are "pre tested by you and known to be at certain levels") that we can use in my spin lab. I am happy to do this so we can really put this equipment through its paces since it is widely used in pool store. I even have the Datamate 10 software that is fully customizable that we can program to spit recommended TFPM dosage and products (MA and Baking Soda) in the results. The advantage to that is it can be saved as a template that can be used in any Datamate software that could be made available on this site. Then people who like computer printouts could buy just he Datamate software and just plug their numbers in just like pool math with the added bonus of tracking pool and spa history automatically (imagine requesting a pool store to download the template you want from this site lol ). I have already started that customization for my own use, but until my chemistry testing talents are above novice I wouldn't want to make any bold claims. I realized in my short time here that I am in a unique position to offer that, and would be happy to make that available to this forum as I believe in the TFPM results achieved here. Don't know if any greater good would come from it other than some more hard proof with our data that the Talyor/TF kits are best, and just how good/poor LaMotte's flag ship pool store equipment is!
Like I said, this is all in good fun but I know there may be some on this forum who might really like to know. Which is why I am very curious about the new Taylor TTI 2000/3000....is it as good as their reagents?!
