    Howdy from Iowa newbie here

    Hello all I am new to the pool game. I have started with an intex above ground ultra frame 12x24x52 with sand filter and salt water chlorinator. I hope i did my signature correct. I am registered from my phone so not always easy to read instructions. I'm looking for any short cuts or looking to learn from others mistakes. To start with what do you find to be the most reliable testing source?

    Hello and welcome to TFP! Testing method? So glad you asked! We recommend either the TF-100 or Taylor K-2006C. Either one is great, but personally I like the TF-100 for its value. (Link below). Also make sure to ask for the "Speed Stir" which is a great help for mixing. In the end, either test it will serve you well all season. You are making the #1 perfect choice by making the proper test kit a priority before anything else. Great to have you here at TFP!
