Product Information


This is a Taylor Drop Test for Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) (Acid Base Titration) Test Kit. The K-1764 Kit tests for Total Dissolved Solids using a drop test system and acid-base titration method/chemistry.

Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) are usually high levels of phosphates and nitrates, which can consume chlorine and provide nutrients to algae. High TDS levels can also cause low-grade corrosion to metal pipes, ladders and lights in a pool, due to an adjuvant increase in the pool water conductivity. It is recommended that pool water be maintained at 1,200 ppm.

Product Features

  • Total Dissolved Solids: 1 drop = 50 ppm.
  • Reagents are 3/4 oz. and 2 ounces
  • Reagents: R-0007-A, R-0008-C, R-0811-C, R-0810-C.

Instructions for Drop Test Total Dissolved Solids

When dispensing reagents from dropper bottles, always hold bottle in a vertical position.
