    Salty!

    Hi everyone! I'd like to buy a test for salinity in my salty pool, something I can use seperate from the AquaPure's own meter.

    Is the Taylor K-1766 a good idea? Or something else?

    Thanks all!

    The K-1766 is good. Buying it from TFTestkits.net is even better.

    Works for me. Just today, I had to prove to myself that it works on cold or heated water. Should have just trusted TFP. It was exactly the same at 60F and 90F. It's 200 PPM per drop, so with droplet variability I suppose it's +/- 10% and plenty of resolution for the job. The end point is easy to detect.
