    test kit still viable?

    hey all-
    new to the forums and this method...


    I have a taylor 2006 test kit. it has been kept outside, in a shed. lots of variable temps,. from 30f in winter to 100f in summer. at least 4 years old, I'm assuming it is trash? what do you think? thanks!

    I really think it's time for a new test kit. You can get new reagents for your K-2006, but I think when all is said and done it would be more expensive.

    Order a TF100 That will give you enough reagents for a couple of years normal use. Or, give them a call at (919) 528-1454. I'm sure they know which way is less expensive for you.

    I also have the SpeedStir and Sample Sizer. They speed testing and accuracy.
