What is the difference between the K 2005 and the K 2006

A  Answered on 8/18/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Stacey M.

Hello, The only difference between the k2005 and K2006 or Complete FAS-DPD. The only difference is the chlorine test, which employs a powder reagent plus the dropper bottles with liquids. Instead of matching colors to get a reading, with this method you simply count the number of drops needed to make the treated sample go colorless. Colorblind people can use this test successfully. The range of the chlorine test is greater too. It can read as low as 0.2 parts per million (ppm) and up to 20 ppm without the indicator color getting bleached out by a high level of chlorine. Although this kit is mostly used by health department inspectors and public pool operators.

Is there a reagent replacement kit available for the K2005 test kit or do I just buy another entire kit?

A  Answered on 5/4/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

Which reagents are you needing to replace, and I can see if we have those ones in stock?

For how long will the chemicals in test kits provide accurate results? Years / months? Test strips?

A  Answered on 2/20/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alan M.

The reagents in liquid test kits should be replaced every year. The test strips remain accurate for one year as long as they are kept dry and stored in a cool location out of the sun.We recommend testing be done inside so the sunlight does not distort the colors.

I'm in need of a kit for testing my saltwater hot tub. Does this kit have everything I need to test the levels?

A  Answered on 2/15/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

That will test the main chemicals, but will not test the salt level. Part number NP221 will test your salt level though.

,I have a problem witch checking chemicals in one of my pool, when I check total alkalinity my water change the color to blue and after I add some drops it change from blue to yellow. I'm using Taylor kit

A  Answered on 10/20/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Brian M.

The age of the reagents may play a factor. If the chlorine level is really high, then the color may flash from blue to yellow instead of green to red. You can try adding a small amount of chlorine neutralizer to the sample to see if that helps

I used a liquid test kit to test the chlorine in my pool water and ended up with a red instead of a shade of yellow. What would cause this?

A  Answered on 10/18/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

When using any test kit (liquid or strips) the test results should be within the color range on the chart. If they are not, you have "interference" Usually interference can be caused by the presence of metals in the water or high chlorine reading. Also make certain that the pool water is being circulated when you take your sample.
