Help Finding a Chlorine Test Kit That Reads to 15ppm

Postby Jack Sparrow » Tue 31 Jul, 2007 08:51

I've been looking high and low and can't find a chlorine test kit that will read up to 15ppm. Is anyone familiar with a kit that will go this high. It's impossible to check shock levels with a kit that only goes to 5ppm.

The K-2006 is an excellent kit for the money. If you want to test up to 15.0, just dilute your sample 3:1 with distilled water and triple the test result. now tests up to 15ppm. ;)

Also, if you already have a good drop-based (not test strips) test kit for pH, Total Alkalinity, Cyanuric Acid (CYA) and Calcium Hardness (CH), then the Taylor K-1515-A (or K-1515-C for larger reagent quantities) will give you the FAS-DPD chlorine test kit by itself -- the same one found in the K-2006. This will test up to 50 ppm FC (using extra scoops of powder to do so) and measures with a resolution of 0.2 ppm or 0.5 ppm depending on sample size.

Another test kit similar to the K-2006 but with better reagent sizes is at this link.
