    Holy Cow...Test Kits sold out again!!

    I am so appreciative of the confidence ya'll have shown in this kit.....for the second time since making it available just three weeks ago, we are completely sold out. I am posting this info here because I'm not yet able to modify my site to get this info out.

    All kits that were ordered as of yesterday were shipped yesterday. From today, I can ship no more kits.

    I am hoping to track down a couple of items and have kits available again on Tuesday, but as of now it will be Friday, June 15th, before I can ship. (I've quadrupled my supplies order this time).

    Thanks again for giving us and this kit your support. I believe this will be the last delay the rest of the Summer but, that said, I saw no way we would ever get sold out before.......your support of the Test Kit has just been great.

    Thank You!

    Dave,

    Congratulations on your success! Job well done. I personally recommend anybody looking for a great test kit to jump on board with Dave and the TFP 100 Test Kit. It is so easy to use.

    Wow! I guess it shows that there is a real need for the product. Probably pretty hard to anticipate sales. If everybody knew how good they were, you'd be swamped. You just don't realize how much better they are than the cheap kits until you have one in your hands. So much easier to know what's going on, and you don't have to ration your tests because of chemical quantities.

    Dave, I think it says a lot about you that you are so concerned about shipping within one day turn-a-round time.

    I doubt anyone is going to mind waiting a few extra days to get such a worthwhile product.

    Congrats on the suceess - It's well deserved!

    I found this site from a post on poolforum.com and some of the guys over there recomended the kit since the guy over there isn't making them right now.

    I think I ordered mine right before I signed up for the forum.

    Thanks for the forum by the way.

    Dave,
    Is there somewhere we can buy more CYA testing solution? I seem to be using this up faster than anything else.

    thanks,

    HI, Dave,

    I had hopes of being into refills by now but the test kit sales have really had us covered up (If that sounds like a complaint....somebody needs to kick me in the butt!! )

    There is enough CYA reagent in the kit for nine complete tests. My thinking was that would cover just about anyone for a couple of years at least. I have assumed that testing 4 times per season was gracious plenty.

    Now, if your using it to flavor the burgers, all bets are off!!

    'Til I can get online refill ordering available, most pool stores stock the reagent.....the local Leslie's here has it in .75 and 2 oz containers.

    As always, I am appreciative of the tremendous response ya'll have shown for the test kit. We'll keep working on making it better and shipping it faster.

    I found some at my local pool store in a 8 ounce bottle, says CYA reagent. I assume that is what I would need?

    Yep, that should do it. To be safe we might let waterbear chime in here.....if what you found is not Taylor R-0013 there could be an issue but my gut feeling is they're all pretty much the same.

    8 oz?? You ARE flavoring the burgers!!

    Well, I suppose you can tell they're done when the black dot disappears

    (Sheesh! rereading, that's not that funny.....I think it may be in my interests to spend less time on the forum and get a real job)

    Yes it was pretty big. It was with all the reagents, but I don't remember a brand.

    The bummer this is that for every test I do, I get actually do it 3 times, because my CYA is ~90ppm. The black dot goes away fast

    I don't need any right now, but I will need it before anything else so I just looked at the store.

    I really like the test kit.

    Thank you!

    Dave,

    The bottom line on the CYA mixing bottle is 15 ml. Find some way to measure 7.5 ml and put it in the bottle. Make a new line at that point and then let that be your pool water line and the old bottom line then becomes the CYA reagent line.

    You'll get twice the number of tests with your high CYA pool.

    Again, I'd like for waterbear to give that idea the thumbs up before it's put into action.
