    New pool/new to salt

    Hi everyone. Glad to be here. I have done alot of rteading on here and I am starting to understand(I think).
    Got pool set up and going good. All seems fine. Had water tested at local pool store. Ordering test kit tonight or in the am. Test strips are not reading correct so a test kit is definetly in order.

    Welcome to TFP. Wise choice in ordering your own test kit. I'm new to the salt system too but I'm getting use to it thanks to this community.

    salt isn't any harder if you get your SWG running happy its actually easier as you have to add very little chlorine manually or none at all. Welcome to the forums listen to everyone here and the only problem you will have is seeing all the dirt on the bottom of the pool to easy!
