    Taylor 2005 kit

    I found a good deal on this test kit. Not sure if it will do all I need for a TFP. What is the difference between the 2005 and the 2006? I couldnt find the 2005 on this site anywhere but im not very pc savvy either. Thanks guys!

    No it will not. It lacks the FAS DPD kit for free chlorine.

    The best kit you can buy is the TF-100. Click the link in my signature to find it.

    The 2006 is not as good, only because it has small amounts of the most used chemicals in it. It and the TF100 use the exact same ones made by Taylor.

    Just as a very quick answer I'm pretty sure the 2005 comes with the "wrong" chlorine test and not the FAS-DPD type test that you need to test and follow TFP methods!

    I'm sure someone with more info will post soon to confirm this!

    The other issue with a "good deal" is that you may get old/expired chemicals/reagents. If you are sure of the chemicals and it is still a good deal factoring in the addition of the FAS-DPD test is may be worthwhile.

    Exactly what i was going to say. If it is a great deal, and has newer reagents, then adding the FAS-DPD might be worth it. Other than that, the TF-100 is the best deal.
