Taylor Technologies K-2006 Complete™ FAS-DPD kit for Chlorine, pH, Alkalinity, Hardness, CYA (FAS-DPD–high range) (.75 oz bottles) Description

The Complete FAS-DPD Chlorine Test Kit from Taylor is a great kit for pool owners.

Here at Aqua-man, Taylor test kits are the only brand we carry on our trucks. We love the reference book they come with! It usually tells us what needs to be done to fix a tricky chemistry problem.

The Taylor Complete FAS-DPD Test Kit will test for:

  • Free & Total Chlorine .2 - 20 ppm (This is a special titration test that requires no color matching)
  • pH (7.0 - 8.0)
  • Acid Demand
  • Base Demand
  • Total Alkalinity
  • Cyanuric Acid (Conditioner)
  • Calcium Hardness

Taylor Complete FAS-DPD Features:

  • Kit includes a copy of Pool & Spa Water Chemistry. This is a great reference guide for understanding how your water chemistry affects your pool. It is easy to read and understand, and provides great information from basic water testing to comprehensive tables for what chemicals you need to use to balance your pool.
  • Titration based chlorine test for improved accuracy and no color matching. This also allows you to read free and combined chlorine directly without subtracting.
  • Water proof instructions are printed under the lid of the kit for fast and easy reference.

The Complete FAS - DPD from Taylor is the only test kit you'll need for your chlorine swimming pool.

Potential Interferences

Test ParameterDescription
Calcium, Magnesium, Total HardnessMetal ions may cause interference; to prevent, add titrant containing EDTA to sample before buffer and indicator, then test as normal making sure to count drops of titrant added initially in total required to reach endpoint. If interference still occurs, dilute sample with DI water as necessary and retest.
ChlorineChlorine levels > approx. 25 ppm may bleach out indicator or cause sample to develop a brown color; to prevent, add more DPD powder or dilute sample with DI water as necessary and retest. Other halogens and oxidized manganese may cause positive interference.
pHIron > 10 ppm may cause negative interference.
pHSanitizer levels > approx. 10 ppm may cause a blue-purple color resulting in false high readings. Wait for sanitizer level to decrease to normal levels and retest to assure an accurate reading.
Total AlkalinityHigh halogen level may change indicator reaction from green/red to blue/yellow; to prevent, add thiosulfate prior to testing.
