    Confused between 2 test kit products

    I wanted to buy K-2006 test kit and found these 2 products online:

    Taylor Technologies, K-2006 Complete Poolcare DPD-FAS Test Kit - PST Pool Supplies
    Taylor Technologies, Service Complete Pool Water Test Kit K-2006C - PST Pool Supplies

    The 2006 is around $40 less than the 2nd one 2006c. But 2006 is out-of-stock. If I'm going to spend $40 more, I would really want to know if it's worth it? I mean, what's big the difference between the two?
    Hope someone can enlighten me.

    The TF-100 is the best test kit when you look at how many tests you can complete with your kit. The K-2006 doesn't have enough to get through the season, so either get the K-2006C or the TF-100. Below is a comparison of these and a few other kits:

    You live in CA... PoolSupplyWorld.com ships from CA. They can get you the TF-100 in short order. $70, and if you order more I read someone say $100 gets you free shipping. Get the Speed Stir device- worth every penny and speeds up testing.

    The TF-100 is all Taylor reagents. They just purchase them in bulk and repackage them
