Some people have asked us whether our reagents are compatible with other commonly available Australian FAS-DPD pool test kits. Where we know this information, we have provided it below. “Full” means that these chemicals are essentially identical. “Compatible” means that as long as the reagents are used in our bottles, then our reagents are 100% compatible, even though our drop sizes may be different. We’d be happy to answer any questions, just drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

- The pH solutions R-0004 and R-0014 are the same chemical, but at different concentrations to suit different comparators. Depending on which comparator you are using, either reagent may work for you if you adjust the number of drops.
- Note that the drop size in our bottles are about 3/4 of the size of the Taylor reagents, but our chemical concentration is the same. Therefore, the number of drops to use in the Taylor tests should be increased compared to their instructions.
- We have tested our Chlorine Detection Reagent against the NQ-100, and can confirm that we can use this reagent to add combined chloramine detection to this kit.
