Advantages of FAS-DPD Test Kits

FAS-DPD Test Kits measure both total and free available chlorine with a high level of accuracy. One advantage is no waiting time for full color development.

Color-Matching Kits

The color-matching test kits and drop-count titrations give straightforward answers. They are available with 3/4, 1 or 2 ounce reagents and/or tablets reagents.

Ideal Bromine Levels

The ideal bromine level in a pool is 3-5 ppm. Too much bromine can burn skim and bleach swimsuits.

Product Information


This is a Drop Test Bromine FAS-DPD 2 ounce Test Kit (1 drop equals 0.5 or 1.25 ppm bromine). The K-1517-C Kit tests for total bromine using a drop test and FAS-DPD reagents.

If you use bromine instead of chlorine to sanitize your pool or spa, testing for bromine is essential. In general, your bromine level should be 3-5 parts per million (ppm). Right after you shock your pool or spa, the number may be higher.

Product Features

  • FAS-DPD Bromine: 1 Drop = 0.5 or 1.25 ppm.
  • Reagents are 2 oz. and grams
  • Reagents: R-0870-I, (2) R-0872-C
