    Test kit

    Is it important to get a new test kit each year. My test kit is a year old. Is it still good?

    Welcome to TFP!

    If you stored it in a dark, climate-controlled location, your kit should get you through a 2nd swim season. It would still be a good idea to check your reagents for discoloration. If none is present, you should be good to go.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.

    If you kept it inside all winter, it should be OK. Most of the reagents in the TF-100 and K-2006 are good for a couple of seasons. Just replace what you are low on before you run out!
