Taylor Expands in the West
Taylor Technologies is teaming up with Blake Sales Associates, Inc., to expand pool and spa sales along the West Coast.
Located in Vista, CA, Blake Sales Associates will be serving as Taylor's sales representative to our resellers in the western region of the United States. Until now, Taylor staff handled distributor and retail sales in the West internally. However, the realization of potential in this area has prompted the test-kit giant to dive headfirst into product distribution in the region.
"Blake Sales Associates is the perfect fit for Taylor's commitment to quality products, service, and support," says Rob Millard, Taylor Technologies' Vice President of Pool & Spa Sales. “The West Coast is an area rich with possibility, and we see this partnership as another step in the execution of our growth strategies. With their help, we can take our high-quality products to every part of the region."
With decades of experience in the field of water-related backyard products, Bob Blake founded Blake Sales Associates, Inc., in 1986. The company is now proud to be "serving the largest pool and spa market in the world." Company President Mike Ramey adds, "Blake Sales is very excited to be associated with a quality organization like Taylor Technologies. We are extremely selective when it comes to choosing what companies to represent, and seeing the quality in both the Taylor products and their personnel—that’s exactly what we look for in a manufacturer to manufacturer's agent relationship. When I look at what we've done in the past with water-testing products and see where the strengths and opportunities are with Taylor as a leader in that category, it really is a perfect fit, and it positions both of our companies to have great success together in the western United States."

Things Are Looking H2O-So-Nice for the Northeast
Taylor Technologies is teaming up with Waterlines, Inc., for a pool and spa party no distributor or retailer will want to miss. Located in Franklin, NJ, Waterlines will be serving as Taylor’s sales representative to our resellers in the northeast region of the U.S.
Until now, distributor and retail sales in the Northeast were handled internally, by Taylor staff. However, the realization of potential in this area has prompted the test-kit giant to dive headfirst into product distribution in the region.
"Waterlines is the perfect fit for Taylor’s commitment to quality products, service, and support," says Jody O’Grady, Taylor Technologies' Vice President of Sales Operations and Support. "The Northeast is an area rich with possibility, and we believe that with the help of Waterlines, we can take our high-quality products to every part of it."
Waterlines, Inc., was founded in 1985 by Steve Swirsky and Ray Gunder, each possessing decades of experience in the water-related backyard products field. Waterlines is operated on the premise that all manufacturers want their products to be sold by "quality, credit-worthy distributors and retailers."
"Taylor craves the kind of long-lasting, key-player relationships that Waterlines is known for," adds Chris Golden, Taylor Technologies' Vice President of Sales Development and Growth. “And we can barely wait to see Taylor products in new and exciting corners of the market.”
Taylor Technologies Named AWT's Supplier of the Year
AWT, the Association of Water Technologies and The Voice of the Water Treatment Industry, has spoken.
And guess what it had to say?
AWT has named Taylor Technologies their 2013 Supplier of the Year!
The management and staff at Taylor were made aware of this award recently, since we were invited to receive it at the AWT Annual Reception and Award Dinner in Uncasville, CT on November 1, 2013.

A Chlorine and Bromine Heart Transplant for 2000 Series Test Kits
Pool and spa chemical levels can no longer hide behind the need for dilution with Taylor Technologies’ new comparator block
Pool and spa professionals have expressed their high-level chlorine and bromine testing woes and Taylor Technologies has answered with a new, more comprehensive comparator block. Available now, the newly revised 2000 Series™ comparator block, dubbed by Taylor's chemists as the "heart of any test kit," ensures that within the world of pool and spa water balance, the beat will go on.
"We're finding that people are choosing to maintain higher chlorine and bromine levels," says Alex Wooden, Vice President of Strategic Development at Taylor Technologies, Inc. "Pool and spa owners, operators, and service professionals often need to dilute samples to get accurate readings, and whenever extra steps are involved, human error plays a role. Our newest comparator block addresses this problem."
The comparator block's .5 and 1.5 ppm chlorine standards have been replaced with the new color standards 1, 2, 3, 5, 7.5, and 10 ppm. Likewise, bromine readings 1, 3, and 5 ppm have been eliminated, making room for the 2, 4, 6, 10, 15, and 20 ppm standards. Testing up to 10 ppm chlorine and 20 ppm bromine can now be accomplished simply, without dilution and recalculation.
Taylor Technologies' current comparator block is designed for collecting water samples, mixing reagents, and matching colors to measure free and total chlorine, bromine, total alkalinity, calcium hardness, and cyanuric acid. Features include a flange for enhanced visibility of the cyanuric acid test scale, a large tube that accommodates the optional SampleSizer™, raised water volume fill marks, a frosted backing for uniform color perception, and a dilution guide to assist in reading high chemical concentrations above 10 ppm Cl or 20 ppm Br. The new 2014 comparator block design retains those features, while making the reading of high concentrations simpler and practically eliminating the need for the dilution guide.
The new #9056 comparator replaces the comparator block in the following 2000 Series™ kits:
K-2000, K-2000S, K-2005, K-2005S, K-2005C,
K-2005CS, K-2007, and K-2015.

TTi Colorimeter Series Debuts
You already know you can trust Taylor chemistries. Now get that same reliable performance from your handheld meter!
The TTi® 3000 Colorimeter (M-3000) for water treatment professionals is preprogrammed to test 30+ water quality parameters commonly encountered in commercial and industrial settings, including the most popular boiler and cooling water tests. See complete details here.
The TTi 2000 Colorimeter (M-2000) for testing pools and spas can be used to monitor 13 parameters, such as metals that cause staining on surfaces (copper and iron) and the sodium chloride content of vessels equipped with salt water chlorine generators.
Their user-friendly features include the ability to create your own menus of favorite tests, adjustable backlighting on the large liquid crystal display, and an auto-read function on the test timer, so you never miss seeing a result because you got preoccupied with other tasks. Unlike competing models, our meters come with data interface software, an AC power adapter, a USB cable, and all other essentials—no surprise expenses here!
Both meters offer lifetime free software upgrades as new tests are developed; an industry-best five year warranty; and the tech support Taylor is renowned for, by phone and online.
Optional accessories include an Accuracy Check Kit with five standards to verify instrument performance (K-8000) and an attaché-type carrying case (gray 9502 for M-3000; blue 9504 for M-2000).

With so many packaging options available for Taylor's sureTRACK® test strips, we’re certain you’ll be able to find one that meets your needs. For pool supplies stores that sell test strips, we offer individually foil-wrapped sureTRACK® 4-way or 6-way strips inside a clear clamshell case. "The two enemies of any dry reagent system are air and moisture," explains JB Babcock, Taylor's Director of Engineering. "Our shaker dispenser prevents spoilage due to wet fingers or over-exposure to air by limiting how many strips can pop out at one time. There’s also an extra-large desiccant pillow inside the shaker. But wrapping each strip individually in foil adds an extra layer of protection. It also makes them ideal for checking the water quality at your local pool or fitness center, or the hotel pool when traveling. Just stick one in your pocket or carryall." sureTRACK test strips give water analysis results that compare favorably with Taylor wet-chemistry tests. We use a more expensive process than ordinary four-color printing to produce the sureTRACK color-matching charts. This "spot printing" results in consistent hues throughout every production run, so there can be no confusion when comparing the colors that develop on the strip with the color standards printed on the product label.
The newest sureTRACK-6 strips added to our lineup make testing and maintaining balanced water easier than ever. Simply download the free water analysis app onto a smartphone or tablet, dip the strip into a water sample, snap a photo of the reacted strip, and within seconds treatment recommendations and dosages are at your fingertips. Test results may also be entered manually using the free user website.
Our 4-way strip tests for free chlorine or bromine, pH, and total alkalinity. The 6-way strip adds tests for total hardness and cyanuric acid (chlorine stabilizer). Having both chlorine and bromine tests on the same strip is a boon for consumers who use chlorine to sanitize their pool but bromine for their portable spa. The advantage to retailers is having one SKU versus two. For more information on each packaging option, including product photos, follow these links:
Resealable foil pouches contain 10 strips and ship in packs of 25. They are an inexpensive way to introduce your customers to a superior dry-chemistry test. Purchase 10 packs or more (250+ units) and get a customized product label for free.

Now! Two SampleSizer Measuring Tools Available
Many Taylor specialty tests are done with either a 25-mL or 10-mL water sample in our 9198 sample tube. For instance, the FAS-DPD chlorine test, the EDTA chelant test, and the saltwater test for pools equipped with chlorine generators. Using our nifty tool, you won't need to flick off the excess water to get the meniscus of the sample water to rest precisely on the fill line. Simply lower the SampleSizer® 10 & 25 mL (6190) into the 9198 test vial filled with the water to be tested. It will displace exactly the right amount to leave the correct volume to perform the test—either 25 mL or 10 mL, depending on which end of the tool goes in first. The SampleSizer is removed once the extra water is splashed out. Order singly or in a 12-pack (6190-12) for a 10% savings.
The 6190 also can be used in the large tube of our just-released 2000 Series™ color comparators 9056, 9057, and 9058 (see article above) to get proper sample volumes for the total alkalinity and calcium hardness tests. Resizing the comparator made this possible. While we were at it, we created a second measuring tool—the SampleSizer® 44 mL (6191)—to make it easy to get the correct volume for the pH test. Order in the 12-pack (6191-12) for a 10% savings over eaches. 2000 Series kit sellers and owners take note: neither SampleSizer will work correctly in comparator blocks manufactured before April 2012.

Poolside Training in Bloomington, Indiana
Thanks to Simeon Baker, an Environmental Health Specialist with the Monroe County (Indiana) Health Department, for sending along photos from his recent training session. A Certified Pool Operator® and veteran pool inspector, Mr. Baker uses our K-2006 combination kit to teach maintenance managers at pools in the area about the dynamic nature of water chemistry. He finds the kit's FAS-DPD method particularly helpful in explaining why a total chlorine reading can give an operator a false sense of security that his water is safe for bathers.
A demonstration of this method shows how the total chlorine residual is composed of free chlorine, which is actively destroying bacteria and other contaminants, and combined chlorine, which has little sanitizing capability. Combined chlorine is the culprit behind swimmers' red, irritated eyes and that unpleasant "chlorine" odor associated with heavily used indoor pools and spas.
To learn more about the FAS-DPD method for testing chlorine as well as the other tests in the K-2006, watch these demonstrations.
New Addition to Myron L Meter Line
Test conductivity, total dissolved solids, or salinity with Myron L's Ultrapen™ PT1, now available from Taylor as product number 6555. Contents include the pocket tester; a high-capacity N-type battery; a pocket clip, holster, and lanyard; and a water scoop. Calibrate with Taylor's R-0868-39C conductivity solution. The pen's advanced features include highly stable microprocessor-based circuitry, user-intuitive operation, and waterproof housing.
Per the manufacturer, applications include boilers and cooling towers, pools and spas, wastewater testing, food and beverage testing, reverse osmosis systems, irrigation water, and more. To take a measurement, you simply press a button then dip the PT1 into the solution. Results, including temperature, display in seconds.

CNN Safe Swimming Inquiry Features a Commercial Series Kit
A report by CNN's Carter Evans looked at how safe the water is for swimmers at public pools. On location in the Bronx, New York, he visits a YMCA he says has high standards for water quality maintenance. There a service professional is shown testing the pool water with Taylor's K-1748, a combination kit in the Commercial Series™ distinctive for its Midget™ comparators with liquid-color standards.
Not all public pools are so vigilant, he says, citing a recent study by the federal Centers for Disease Control. Evans then interviews a representative from CDC's "Healthy Swimming" initiative who warns of the public health dangers from poorly maintained pools. The remedy, they suggest, is for patrons to test the water themselves before jumping in, using a simple test strip that will detect pH and sanitizer levels.
Taylor is proud to manufacture the test kits of choice for conscientious public pool operators and the service companies who cater to them. For personal assistance in selecting the testing products most appropriate for your application, call 800-TEST KIT (837-8548). One of our representatives will be glad to help!

New Water Balance Calculators
For less than the cost of a burger and fries you can skip the arduous Saturation Index calculation when you're poolside. Plug your test values into one of our Watergram® Water Balance Calculators and learn immediately whether the water is trending towards scaling or corrosive conditions.
The improved 6026 has become a three-disk slide rule, thus eliminating the manual subtraction step in the original version. This circular Watergram makes it easy to play with different treatment scenarios to see which of the water balance parameters makes the most sense to adjust. You'll find it in 2000 Series™ combination test kits and our countertop labs.
We've also developed an electronic version that's as small as a credit-card-size pocket calculator (6028). Indeed, it can be used to perform basic mathematical operations besides the water balance calculation. The programming automatically takes into account the effect cyanuric acid has on total alkalinity and allows a user to override the default value for total dissolved solids with a specific TDS level. "What if" adjustment scenarios are a snap to perform with this solar-powered version, as only the changed value(s) needs to be reentered. The 6028 is included in all Professional Series™ test kits.
Note: both models offer a temperature choice of degrees Fahrenheit or degrees Celsius.
