Let's see if we can post a link to another TFP thread that I started a few days ago

Hi. I know this is old, but can you post a pic of the 2006C kit from above? I wanted to know how much leftover room is in there. Thank you.
Not quite sure what you are asking for in addition to the picture already posted. There's not much leftover room. The bottles fill most of the space in the container. Then there are 2 slots in the middle. One holds the comparator. The other holds the booklet and the CSI wheel. I suppose you could use that space for something small.

I have never once used the CSI wheel. I use poolmath for that. I do use the booklet occasionally instead of breaking out my phone to use poolmath.

A picture like this? This is my K-2005 (I bought before I knew what I needed and before I learned about TFP methods). The K-2005 has a lot of room left over using the .75 oz. bottles.

The other picture is the K-2005 with the regents for chlorine swapped out with the K-1515-A FAS-DPD and added the K-1766 Salt Test.

Based on what you are saying, the 2006C may not have enough room.

I think I may go with an art supply kit like Dodger has. I like to keep the bottles upright!

P.S. I also now need room for the Speedstir which is awesome. No more swirling like a newb! :)

Time to wake up this thread.. Hey Mod's can you merge all the Show us your test kits threads!, There are some great ideas floating around in them.

So here is mine.. I fiddle ferted around with the bottles until I got what I thought was a logical arrangement. That darned box is just not quite right in the dimensions; too long this way, not quite right that way.. arrgh. I dispensed with the little blue boxes and laminated the test instructions. I created a little slide pocked in the lid with some packing tape for my instruction cards and reference info. The bottles are compartmentalized by test up top, and the testing vials and gear are down below.. Right now it has a home in the bottom of my wine rack, next to the wet bar where I can perform my tests! Mooo Hooo Haaa Haaa! 🧠🧪⚗🔬🧫🧬🚽

I finally bit the bullet after finding a good deal on a Taylor K-2006C-SALT. (Sorry TF-100, I like my bottles vertical!) :)

My first kit was a Taylor K-2005 I bought at a pool store before I learned about the FAS-DPD testing. I added a K-1766 salt test kit to that. Then once I learned about the FAS-DPD type of testing, I bought a K-1515. My Franken-Kit was a pretty nice setup. I also had the Speedstir and the test tubes for each test on a separate tray.

The K-2006C-SALT is huge! Way bigger than I thought. But once I pulled out the extra powder, extra CYA, and extra Silver Nitrate reagents, there was a lot of room for all my test tubes and Speedstir!

I am quite happy with this setup now.

@OTPirate .. Sorry I just couldn't make the case you included work.. The case was convenient but it was just not the right dimensions for how I wanted to arrange my stuff... BUT, the case will not go unappreciated.. I have something else to use it for...

In the meantime I found this little "Boite a outiles" at the local Dollar store. It does two things.. its dark so the reagents are not exposed to light AND the bottles stand up so they don't accidentally leak. I even have room for a few more things if I need to add to it. The only thing I can't fit in there is my 8ft long turkey baster for sucking water from the middle of the pool.
