    The right Test kit?

    I just purchased a K-2006 Complete FAS-DPD chlorine test kit. That was before I found this web site, which suggests the T-100. Have I made a mistake? I am looking for a kit to monitor my CYA levels. I have a 24 ft diameter above-ground vinyl pool. .

    That kit will work fine. In fact, it's what many (if not most) pool service professionals use. The major advantage of the T-100 is that it provides more of the reagents most commonly used, so it generally a much better value for the residential pool owner.

    Welcome!

    Nope, it'll work. It has the same reagents as the TF100, just smaller quantities, hence, lower price. Side by side comparison in Pool School - Test Kits Compared

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
