    Trouble reading test results

    I have the Taylor K-2005 test kit. When testing the clorine level I have trouble telling the slight difference between the color shades. Is there a good test kit that doesn't require matching color shades?

    TIA

    The FAS-DPD test is a drop test that you count the number of drops and that tells you how much free chlorine and CC's you have (or don't have ) and it doesn't require that you match shades of anything. The TF-100 and the K2006 include the FAS-DPD test but the K2005 does not. You can order the tests seperately, TF Test Kits sells the FAS-DPD test and I think it's around $23 plus shipping, its so worth it.

    Thanks Poolmom. Sounds like what I need. For $35 more I can get the whole kit so that might be a better deal. Maybe my PB would let me upgrade.
