Accuracy of Taylor K-1000 test kit colors

Just went with SWG so I bought a Taylor TF-100 test kit and it came with a K-1000 kit just for quick chlorine & ph testing. The chlorine test has colors to match for .5, 1, 2, 3, 5 ppm. But I'm puzzled though because the 2 & 3 colors appear to be identical. Some of my friends even think the 2 is yellower than the 3! Did I just get a bad kit or are they all made this way?

It’s for spot checking only. Yesterday was a 9 and you expect it to be today as well because of the SWG. The 7-10 guess on the block is good enough to prove you are still covered. Test for real with the powder test tomorrow again.
