    K-2005 Kit Upgrade?

    I'm new to the TFP method and very happy I switched! I found this because my chlorine shocks weren't working which led to me discovering CYA levels which I didn't even know to test before. I believe I have the K-2005 kit (it came from Leslies but is Taylor) and it appears to have everything except the CYA test reagents and glass with the dot. Is this correct? I haven't found anywhere to buy just a CYA tester but thought if that is the only difference at least I can get use out of the K-2005 reagents and not waste so much of it.

    Assuming I'm correct and will have to buy another entire kit, it appears that the TF-100 is the best buy with more chemicals than the K-2006 and the recommended Leslie's kit has a pretty hefty profit added on to it for the same thing. Am I missing anything or is the TF-100 the way to go?

    Thanks!

    Sounds like you just need to order the FAS/DPD portion to augment your current set. See this link HERE.

    Feel free to see all the options and kits at my TF-100 link below. PS - I love my TF-100. Good luck!

    Here is a link to the CYA test and the TAS-DPD Chlorine test

    I don't think the taylor 2005 has either one of these.

    Good job taking over the care of your pool!

    You probably have k-1000 kit as k-2005 kit does include CYA reagents and test tube with a dot (doubled as OTO chlorine test tube).
    I've upgraded from k-2005 to k-2006 as I'd rather have smaller sizes and restock as needed on fresh chemicals, then have some sitting around for too long, since some tests you only do once a week or so.
