    TF Test Kit

    Not sure if this is the appropriate category for sharing my experience with ordering the TF Test Kit. I just wanted to share with the members how great of an experience I had with ordering and recieving the test kit. Which looks like a big fishing tackle box . I ordered it Wednesday, the 18th, and it came on Saturday. I can't wait to do the first test.

    Uh-oh......Uh, it is a fishing tackle box. Doh!

    Another one of my trade secrets down the drain!

    I think I'm safe, tho. The elves are out in the barn now and, although they're liquored up again, they have been making test kits like there's no tomorrow. behind-the-scenes-at-tf-test-kits-t3636.html?hilit=elves

    On a more serious note, Thanks for the nice words, Roger, I (and the elves) appreciate it.

    Dave,

    What is the purpose of the white cloth in the basic test kit?

    Mine is long since gone but I believe it was intended to be there as a water absorber. Taylor packages that kit and, I must admit, I hadn't thought much about it for years. Others may have found a better or more correct use.

    I've ordered other liquids by mail that came with the same material. I assume it is there in case of a leak while shipping.

    Re: TF Test Kit

    I hold the white stuff behind the color block, usually 2-3" away and move around to get a decent indirect even light through the block. Not that my aging eyes are all that good at distinguishing the color blocks, I'm not convinced that the chlorine 2 and 3 blocks are actually different.

    The first (non-Taylor) test kit I bought didn't have that kind of white pad, but it did have a white card to use for the same purpose.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll use it as a water absorer.
