Specialty Test Kits

Our Specialty Kits typically focus on measuring one type of chemical and are useful when you only need to test one special factor like hydrogen peroxide or phosphates.

Color-Matching Kits

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

Ideal Alkalinity Levels

Alkalinity levels should be between 80 and 120 parts per million (ppm). Low levels can swing your pH levels back and forth.

Product Information


This is a Taylor Drop Test Alkalinity Blended Indicator Test Kit. The K-1726 Kit tests for total alkalinity using the drop test system and a blended indicator method.

The total alkalinity is a measure of how much of the alkaline substances there are in the water. In the swimming pool water, there is a concern with bicarbonate alkalinity which should be between 80 and 120 ppm. Lowering the total alkalinity is a slow process.

Product Features

  • Total Alkalinity: 1 drop = 10 ppm.
  • Reagents are 3/4 ounces.
  • Reagents: R-0007-A, R-0008-A, R-0009-A

Instructions for Drop Test Total Alkalinity (1 drop = 10 ppm)

1. Rinse and fill 25 mL sample tube (#9198) to 25 mL mark with water to be tested.

2. Add 2 drops R-0007 Thiosulfate N/10. Swirl to mix.

3. Add 5 drops R-0008 Total Alkalinity Indicator. Swirl to mix. Sample will turn green.

4. Add R-0009 Sulfuric Acid .12N dropwise, swirling and counting after each drop, until color changes from green to red.

5. Multiply drops of R-0009 Sulfuric Acid .12N by 10. Record as parts per million (ppm) total alkalinity as calcium carbonate.
