    Ordered the wrong chemicals

    So being an idiot I went to amazon to order replacements for my chlorine test. I searched Taylor chlorine test reagent and ordered the biggest bottle.

    What I didn't know was there are apparently two different styles of chlorine test. R-0871 which is what I wanted and R-0001/R-0002 which is what I ordered. Is there a way I can use the chemical I received? Like a color chart I can print out to compare?

    Thanks!

    Nope. Sorry. Those are for the DPD test, not the FAS-DPD test.
    And the DPD test is worst of the 3 chlorine tests IMO.

    Thanks! before I waste $30 more can you check that this is what I actually want? Does the E at the end make a difference?

    If you ordered the reagent from Amazon you should be able to return it.

    That's the one... It's all the FAS-DPD titrating reagent.

    R-0871 is the .75oz bottle.
    R-0871-C is the 2oz bottle.
    R-0871-E is the 16oz bottle (I bought this one too to refill my tiny .75oz dropper).
    R-0871-F is the 32oz bottle (just found out about this one...)

    No, the E is a size designation. The 0871 is the correct reagent, but you can likely find it on Amazon in that size.

    I am not sure I would trust the remaining reagent to be any good after using 14+ oz. I mean I only use about 2 oz a year ... and the regents are only good for a couple years before they may go bad.

    Re: Ordered the wrong chemicals

    Yeah I went for the 16oz the 32oz was a good deal, but there is no way I will use that much unless my pool is just a swap all year...

    If that is the case I think I have bigger problems than my testing. A SLAM burns through the reagent last year I had to do 2 opening and after vacation. I have already started one this year but I ran our of 0871 after the first day, opened the new stuff only to find out it was bright pink which I guess means it still has FC but lord knows how much....
