I read that the TF 100 tests up to 50ppm FC, and it uses Taylor reagents, but when I read the Taylor brochure , it says it can test only to 20ppm.

They use the same reagents with the exception of the pH test. Tf-100 provides more useful amounts and is guaranteed fresh.

Both test the same. The FAS-DPD can test to 50 ppm. Not sure why Taylor says that. It is not correct.

The TF100 is designed for the residential pool owner. So you have more of what you will use and less of what you will rarely use (like CH tests).

Get the Speedstir too - makes testing much easier.

The TF100 actually doesn't have more. It has the same or less. The main plus is probably the lower price making it a better value. And TFtestkits support (own?) this site so there's that too.

If you get the standard K-2006 you will need refills for the chlorine test and CYA test almost right away, the 3/4 oz bottles go pretty quickly.

The K-2006C has much larger 2oz bottles and goes a lot further. I also really like the Taylor kit box, keeps everything organized and stored upright. If you go that way definitely look for the "C" version.

You can order just the FAS/DPD test kit, FAS/DPD Chlorine CC's test.

I just finished researching Taylor's website and the FAS/DPD test states it is only good for 20ppm of FC and 50ppm of bromine. I have tested FC over 30ppm so I'm not sure if the test is considered to be accurate or what. This will need to be looked into so we can get this cleared up.

Not sure why this combined my comments into one response when I responded at different times.

We wanna make you work a little harder to reach that 3k post mark! I've seen that too when I respond again fairly quickly.

ping, can you send me the link to Taylor’s website in which it states that? I looked and could not seem to find it. I’ll email Taylor and see why they state that. Thanks!
