All are welcome, any type, brand, size.......Stock or mod, old or new, big or small, let's see em' ALL! :D

Here's my whole rig....with today's bleach for a little tweak...still floating some pucks, so...:stirpot:



Bucket for Acid dilution, sample and rinse bottles, and of course my book.

Test Kit-Slightly Modded. But everything is in there...



My TF-100 kit is about 4 years old now, but I wanted to have everything in one place, so I've made some mods along the way. Once in a while I'm going over to help someone, so having it all together makes it easy. Of course I have a Speed Stir! ....and
I love the sample sizer. I use DPD pillows instead of the regular powder, but that's about it. I just re-fill as needed...

Let's see yours!!

All I got is one old test strip that got damp then faded out when I left it in the sun last summer........................time to upgrade I guess!

Hey Patrick.....what are those shiny little packets in there? Are those your silver bullets for when your algae goes all "WEREWOLF" on ya'!:cat:

Ok, we have a start...:whoot:

Where's yours JasonLion? AND you too WoodyP...we know you guys have one........

Divin Dave's Backyard Lab! Looks like he pulled a job on TF Testkits... :lol:

Sadly the picture is long gone, but even just the description of CaOCl2's kit is still fairly amazing.
Actually that is. Wonder why he left? Maybe I should show my portable from Work....:scratch:

:(That test looks like it's organized all wrong :D
Which one?? :mrgreen:

I organized mine so all the bottles for each test are together in the same compartment or line. I just move from one test to the next, top left down the line.

K-2006, almost 5 years old. Can you guess how many refills I've had to buy? Dave knows, because I've bought most of them from him!

I've currently got two with similar setups.....

This one I use outside to test daily PH/FC....and if anything jumps out I'll do the FAS/DPD or TA test outside


This one I keep inside where I'm able to once a week do all the tests in the AC taking my time.

Woody - I have one of I think 3 real silver bullets. Given or take about 20 years ago Coors contracted with a commercial jewelry company to make actual silver bullets for a promotion. One they were made they decided not to go forward and all were melted down - except 3.

One hangs on my key ring.......

nope, I didn't make them. A friend ran the jewelry operation and he has one, I got one and a third friend got one.

It's funny, they used a .38 to make the mold, but you always loose a little when you copy an object. It ended up being about a .32

I could probably show you a picture.
