INTRODUCTION
F
or many years the bestsellers in Taylor’s 2000 Series™
have been the Complete™ test kits. These offer the eight
tests needed to ensure swimmers are protected from
germs and vessel surfaces are protected from the ravages of
unbalanced water: namely, chlorine, cyanuric acid (chlorine
stabilizer), bromine, pH, acid and base demand, total
alkalinity, and calcium hardness. The health officials who
inspect public pools, however, generally do not perform all
these tests. Their focus is on water sanitation. The tests they
care most about are for chlorine and bromine; pH, because
of its impact on chlorine’s efficacy; and—if the water is
chlorinated and outdoors exposed to sunlight—cyanuric acid.
Taylor makes two Pool Inspector™ test kits designed for
such compliance inspections: K-2007 and K-2009. These
kits contain tests for sanitizer, pH, and cyanuric acid. Because
inspectors use lots of cyanuric acid reagent, four extra
bottles come with these kits. Also included is a 64-page,
waterproof Pool & Spa Water Chemistry guide valued for its
concise explanations and chemical treatment tables. The
only difference between the K-2007 and the K-2009 is the
method used to test sanitizer.
The K-2007 employs liquid DPD in a color-matching test
that will determine the total bromine residual (up to 20 ppm)
as well as the free and total chlorine residuals (up to 10 ppm
without dilution). The combined chlorine residual is then
calculated by subtraction: TC - FC = CC. Having the ability to
monitor both types of disinfectant is helpful because pools
are mainly sanitized with chlorine, yet hot tubs usually rely
on bromine for frontline sanitation. Scrutinize the photo of
the comparator block in the K-2007 and you will see two sets
of color standards, pinks for the sanitizer reading and orange
to deep pink for the pH reading.
The K-2009 employs FAS titrating solution and DPD
powder in a drop-count test to determine free and combined
chlorine directly, but the reagents cannot be used to test the
bromine level. FAS-DPD has advantages over DPD in certain
situations. First, if an analyst has difficulty distinguishing
between slight differences in the shades of pink on the color
comparator that comes with the K-2007, he will be able to
detect the color change that happens in the K-2009’s FAS-DPD
test. The treated sample goes from a color (vibrant pink) to
no color at all at the point the reading is made. Anyone can
see this, even colorblind individuals. The comparator block
K-2007: Tests are performed

block. Kit may be used to test
both chlorine and bromine.
in the K-2009 has only one set of color standards, for the pH
reading, because the reading for chlorine is made by
counting the number of drops of reagent expended, not
matching colors. Second, the K-2009 tests chlorine over a
wider range of values and in smaller increments. It can
determine combined chlorine as low as 0.2 ppm (versus
0.5 ppm) and free chlorine as high as 20 ppm (whereas the
indicator in the K-2007 starts to bleach out around 15 ppm,
becoming a potential source of error for pools and hot tubs
that have been superchlorinated).
You are encouraged to watch the video demonstrations
of the DPD and FAS-DPD methods posted on our website,
www.taylortechnologies.com, under Product Info/View
Online Demo/Pool-Spa.
Note that the Pool Inspector kits will not permit a user to
determine whether the water is chemically balanced; there
are no tests for total alkalinity or calcium hardness or acid and
base demand, nor is there a Watergram® Water Balance
Calculator, although these features can be added at a later
date, if one desires to upgrade its capabilities to the level of a
Complete test kit. Or, the extra room in the case will allow the
addition of one or more specialty items, such as the reagent
that eliminates the interference in chlorine tests using DPD
Reagent #3 when the water sample contains traces of the
popular oxidizer called potassium monopersulfate.

these instructions and should be
read to use this product properly.
POOL & SPA WATER TESTS

2. Keep test kit out of reach of children.
Free, Combined & Total Chlorine Test
1. Rinse and fill small comparator tube to 9 mL mark with water to be tested.
2. Add 5 drops R-0001 and 5 drops R-0002. Cap and invert to mix.
3. Match color with color standard.* Record as parts per million (ppm) free chlorine (FC).
4. Add 5 drops R-0003. Cap and invert to mix.
5. Match color immediately. Record as ppm total chlorine (TC).

1. Rinse and fill small comparator tube to 9 mL mark with water to be tested.
2. Add 5 drops R-0001 and 5 drops R-0002. Cap and invert to mix.
3. Match color with color standard.* Record as parts per million (ppm) total bromine.
*If color is off-scale: Repeat test using 4.5 mL sample diluted to 9 mL mark
with tap water. Multiply reading by 2 to obtain approximate sanitizer level. If
color is still off-scale: Repeat test using 1.8 mL sample diluted to 9 mL mark
with tap water. Multiply reading by 5 to obtain approximate sanitizer level.
pH Test
1. Rinse and fill large comparator tube to 44 mL mark with water to be tested.
2. Add 5 drops R-0004. Cap and invert to mix.
3. Match color with color standard. Record as pH units and save sample if pH
needs adjustment. If sample color is between two values, pH is average of the
two. To LOWER pH: See acid demand test. To RAISE pH: See base demand test.
Acid Demand Test
1. Use treated sample from pH test.
2. Add R-0005 dropwise. After each drop, count, mix, and compare with color
standards until desired pH is matched. See treatment tables to continue.
Base Demand Test
1. Use treated sample from pH test.
2. Add R-0006 dropwise. After each drop, count, mix, and compare with color
standards until desired pH is matched. See treatment table to continue.
3. Store test kit in cool, dark place.
4. Replace reagents once each year.
5. Do not dispose of solutions in pool or spa.

water to be tested.*
2. Add 2 drops R-0007. Swirl to mix.
3. Add 5 drops R-0008. Swirl to mix. Sample should turn
green.
4. Add R-0009 dropwise. After each drop, count and swirl
to mix until color changes from green to red.
5. Multiply drops in Step 4 by 10. Record as parts per
million (ppm) total alkalinity as calcium carbonate.
*When high TA is anticipated, this procedure may be
used: Use 10 mL sample, 1 drop R-0007, 3 drops R-0008,
and multiply drops in Step 4 by 25.
Calcium Hardness Test
1. Rinse and fill large comparator tube to 25 mL mark with
water to be tested.*
2. Add 20 drops R-0010. Swirl to mix.
3. Add 5 drops R-0011L. Swirl to mix. If calcium hardness is
present, sample will turn red.
4. Add R-0012 dropwise. After each drop, count and swirl
to mix until color changes from red to blue.
5. Multiply drops in Step 4 by 10. Record as parts per million
(ppm) calcium hardness as calcium carbonate.
*When high CH is anticipated, this procedure may be
used: Use 10 mL sample, 10 drops R-0010, 3 drops R-0011L,
and multiply drops in Step 4 by 25.

6. Rinse tubes before and after each test.
7. Obtain samples 18" (45 cm) below water surface.
8. Hold bottle vertically when dispensing.
Instr. #5136
Cyanuric Acid Test
1. Rinse and fill CYA dispensing bottle (#9191) to 7 mL mark
with water to be tested.
2. Add R-0013 to 14 mL mark. Cap and mix for 30 seconds.
3. Slowly transfer cloudy solution to small comparator tube
until black dot on bottom just disappears when viewed
from top.
4. Read tube at liquid level on back of comparator block.
Record reading as parts per million (ppm) cyanuric acid.
Sodium Chloride (Salt) Test
For 1 drop = 200 ppm
1. Rinse and fill sample tube (#9198) to 10 mL mark
with water to be tested.
2. Add 1 drop R-0630. Swirl to mix. Sample should
turn yellow.
3. Add R-0718 dropwise, swirling and counting after
each drop, until color changes from yellow to a
milky salmon (brick) red. Always hold bottle in
vertical position.
NOTE: Do not add enough R-0718 to give a brown
color. First change from yellow to a milky
salmon (brick) red is the endpoint.
4. Multiply drops of R-0718 by 200. Record as parts
per million (ppm) salt as sodium chloride.
