Walmart test kit

I bought the Walmart test kit. Figured I would buy Ben's if he ever resurfaces. Was looking at Taylor's and their's has all the same as Walmart except Taylor has CC test. I like the $ of Walmarts and was wondering if any one sold just a CC test. Is that the only difference between these 2 test kits? Thanks Kay

Both Leslies and Taylor sell the FAS-DPD test as a separate kit.

In the meantime, if you dilute pool water with distilled water you can extend the range of the OTO test.

A 1 to 1 dilution doubles the range from 5ppm to 10ppm.

I like the CarlD "Patented" Shot Glass Method. Mix one shot glass of pool water with one shot of distilled.

If you want to measure to 15ppm, use 2 shots of distilled to 1 shot of pool. 3 shots gets you to 20ppm.

But the more you dilute the harder it gets to be precise.

Distilled water is available at most supermarkets and at the large discount drug stores.
