    Buying a test kit

    I am about to buy a test kit. I have a salt water system. I assume I need to
    get the salt test too-? If shipping is free at $100 what else should I get to
    reach that total?
    Thank you!

    Lots of people like the speed stir. I can't personally vouch for it, but I've never heard of anyone being disappointed with it.

    Yes, salt test will help. The Speed Stir is a definite upgrade as well. If your pool is green you can go with the XL option.

    Oh and I could use some R-0871, ha! Just teasing, but if the above doesn't get you there a spare gauge is highly recommended. TFT gauges are very robust for the price! Congrats on the kit!

    Do you know which kind of mount I would need for the gauge? For a 2650 Intex pump with salt water system?
    thank you!

    I am not too familiar with Intex setups. Most setups are bottom mount, but some Intex don't have a gauge. Sorry I can't be of more help!
