Better deal is at TFTestkits.net. TF100, plus salt kit and SmartStir. SmartStir has been back ordered though.
I got this kit, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004BGF7TI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. Is it the same as the K-2006C?

It is the K2006. Has all the right tests. You will need to get refills of the R0870, R-0871, and R0013 reagents very soon.

That is why we recommend the TF100, it has more reagents for the tests you do the most often.

It took about 5 scoops of DPD too much get it to that hard pink
Don't do that! Only 1 scoop. How pink it turns is somewhat a factor of how much chlorine there is. No point wasting powder.
