    Let's See Your Test Kit!

    All are welcome, any type, brand, size.......Stock or mod, old or new, big or small, let's see em' ALL!

    Here's my whole rig....with today's bleach for a little tweak...still floating some pucks, so...



    Bucket for Acid dilution, sample and rinse bottles, and of course my book.

    Test Kit-Slightly Modded. But everything is in there...



    My TF-100 kit is about 4 years old now, but I wanted to have everything in one place, so I've made some mods along the way. Once in a while I'm going over to help someone, so having it all together makes it easy. Of course I have a Speed Stir! ....and
    I love the sample sizer. I use DPD pillows instead of the regular powder, but that's about it. I just re-fill as needed...

    Let's see yours!!

    Sadly the picture is long gone, but even just the description of CaOCl2's kit is still fairly amazing.

    I organized mine so all the bottles for each test are together in the same compartment or line. I just move from one test to the next, top left down the line.

    Let's See Your Test Kit!

    I've currently got two with similar setups.....

    This one I use outside to test daily PH/FC....and if anything jumps out I'll do the FAS/DPD or TA test outside


    This one I keep inside where I'm able to once a week do all the tests in the AC taking my time.

    Woody - I have one of I think 3 real silver bullets. Given or take about 20 years ago Coors contracted with a commercial jewelry company to make actual silver bullets for a promotion. One they were made they decided not to go forward and all were melted down - except 3.

    One hangs on my key ring.......

    nope, I didn't make them. A friend ran the jewelry operation and he has one, I got one and a third friend got one.

    It's funny, they used a .38 to make the mold, but you always loose a little when you copy an object. It ended up being about a .32

    I could probably show you a picture.
