    Is this chemical the same as the regent used in the Taylor CYA test?

    I know its probably not, but it caught my eye with the quantity - since i was in there to just buy a taylor 2.0oz refill of 0013 - this seemed kinda awesome - but the taylor one doesnt say what chemical it is. The blue devil stuff says its Sodium Acetate and Melamine.

    I would not be surprised if it were, I can't exactly make out the price, but the 8 oz bottle from TF Test Kits is $8, So not all that pricey.

    Price is $12.99 for 32oz. I got 2oz. for $4.99. they didnt have the 8oz bottles, but i didnt know they made that size so i really didnt look.

    Looks like the exact same test, although a post from JasonLion a long time ago said that it uses a different scale, so i guess its a different concentration. dang, if it works the same and you can get a giant bottle for that price, might be worth looking at the other kit.

    No, that one will not cross reference and be ok to use.
