This kit contains a color comparator block for pH and Total Chlorine (or Bromine) It provides a dependable, fast test for chlorine from 1-5ppm and and easy-to-read pH test from 6.8 to 8.2. It can be used in very small pools where you only need pH and basic chlorine tests. It is included inside our best kit, the TF-100, as a quick daily check for chlorine as well as pH.

Personal Consultation: http://www.clean-pool-and-spa.com/swimming-pool-consultation.html A good pool testing kit should include free chlorine (FC), total chlorine (TC), combined chlorine (CC), total alkalinity (TA), pH, calcium hardness (CH) and cyanuric acid/stabilizer (CYA). These are the areas that are the most important to keep your swimming pool water clear and balanced. While the yellow OTO pool water kit is alright if you're in a hurry, it should never replace a good test kit such as the Taylor Reagent K-2006 pool water testing kit for weekly pool maintenance. This OTO kit only tests for chlorine and pH and it only gives a vague range. While these readings are important you need the actual chemical number for each reading. This way you'll have the information you need in order to have the best pool possible. The K-2006 pool test kit is the one the AZ Dept. of Health and OR Dept. of Health use when they test commercial pools because of its accuracy.
WEBSITE: http://www.swimmingpoollearning.com/ YouTube Video Index -- A list of all of my videos:http://poolmandave.blogspot.com/2014/03/swimming-pool-tips-reviews-how-to-video.html Here I compare the Taylor K-2006 to the standard 5 Way OTO test kit, Aquachek Test strips and the Taylor K-2005. I did request a Troublefreepool test kit to compare TFTestkits but they declined having their kit in this video. The K-2006 is the best of the bunch. The FAS-DPD is superior in chlorine testing. I didn't have time to actually do the ppm test or the combined chlorine test - it will appear in a future video. It is almost exactly like the K-2005 except for that test. The Taylor kits give an al around better reading. The Alkalinity test is superior and it does more test than other kits. Base Demand, Calcium Hardness, Conditioner as you can see from the video. So it is worth investing in a K-2006 Taylor kit. It is justthe most expensive kit to operate since you will need to reload the FAS-DPD often - The one in the kit is good for 30 test. There is nothing wrong with starting with a 5 way OTO test kit - but know it has limitations as it only does 5 tests - Free Chlorine. pH, Acid Demand, Alkalinity and Bromine. Just a note that all of these kits test for Bromine so it wasn't worth mentioning as Bromine is not commonly used in pools anyway. The Test Strips are a good indicator of the chemistry range but not a good stand alone tester.

This Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies video will show you how to use water testing kits, specifically the DPD Deluxe Test Kit from Taylor. - Test kits give you readings on your pool's pH, total alkalinity, and sanitizer - Before collecting a water sample, let your pump run for at least one hour - Take your water sample from 12" to 18" below the surface - When adding reagents to your water sample, hold the reagent bottle vertical, and add drops slowly - Your pool's pH should be between 7.4 -- 7.6 - Your pool's chlorine reading should range between 1 -- 3 ppm - Your pool's alkalinity level should be between 80 -- 120 ppm - Store your test kit in a cool, dry place, and pay attention to the expiration date.
