    Dead, brown algae?

    Nobody can advise how easy it is for Canadians to obtain the Taylor reagents? I'm putting off the purchase until next season, given that this pool season is almost done, and the reagents have limited shelf life. (Plus Mr Lowry's quote of CAD175 for the "non-C" version of the kit. About USD130.)...

    Dead, brown algae?

    Au contraire, by creating the impression that he is saving the customer some money, he is hoping to gain a long term following? He felt that the 2006-C was more suited to public pools, with more frequent testing, higher FC requirement, etc. He also commented that certain reagents would last...

    TF-100 CC and TC question! Help!!

    CC is not the same as TC? Yes, I did do the Pool School. I've been trying to care for our pool for 34 years, testing only the pH and free chlorine. DIdn't know any better. On occasion (like at pool opening + when I have trouble) I take a sample to the pool shop where they do more thorough...
