    Matching TFP Test Kits to Taylor Reagents

    Is there a mapping between TFP test kit reagents to Taylor ones? I'm asking only because in a crunch, I'd like to be able to run down to my local pool store and pick up a reagent I'm running low on.

    Specifically, is the FAS-DPD Titrating Reagent sold by Taylor the same as the R-0871 reagent in the TFP test kit?

    Thanks!

    It is the same. In fact Taylor is called the R- 0871. I could not find the powder local but the 0871 I could.

    My local leslie's pool store only sells the DPD reagent, and not the FAS-DPD. In fact, the day I went in there to buy the kit with the FAS-DPD reagents in it, they had never heard of it. It is available at their online store.

    No need for a map. All the TFTestkit chemistry is Taylor chemistry using identical numbers.

    So, what do you need TFTestkits for? I'm faster and less expensive.

    I'm very happy with what I've gotten -- in fact ordered refills today, but it takes a few days to get to the West coast, even with the great service. Fact is, I had to shock my pool and used a bunch of reagent tracking my high chlorine levels, so it would have been nice to pick some reagent up a few miles down the road is all!

    this is very common. I've yet to hear anyone say that a store had the right kit.

    Dave - you do NOT carry the PH reagent for the K-2006, correct?

    I have ordered refills of almost everything for my 2006 from TFTestkits and the quality and service have always been outstanding...

    Dave even follows up on emails while he's on vacation. That's service!

    I have a local store (not a chain store) thats on my way home from work. They actually sell the 2005 and 2006 kit and all the replacement reagents that go into it, including the FAS-DPD powder. But thats the only place i found that does. The Leslie's near me doesnt sell them and neither does the pool store thats run by the guy who built my pool.
