    The TF Test Kit uses Taylor reagents. Taylor only rates their reagents for one year. However, stored in a cool dark place everything in the test kit should last at least two year and quite possibly longer.

    Hi Jason,

    My order for the TF-100 is plenty of back up reagents. Since my ambient temp here is high, will it help if I put in a refrigerator at 4 deg celcius ?

    Thanks

    It's not just temperature but the chlorine test reagents are ruined by light, moisture (for the DPD powder), and oxygen. All the other reagents in the kit should last at least 2 years or more if not stored under extreme conditions. the DPD powder and FAS titrant are the ones with the short shelf life.
