    Re: Hi new to site

    Hi First Time post for new pool owner. I have read through the Pool School articles, very helpful. I did 2 "free" water test kits at the local store to get started, now I'm wanting to do my own testing.
    Opening questions:
    1. Which test kits should I get: I see recommendations for Taylor K-2006 and K-2006C. What's the difference and do I need the more expensive one, and why? Is there a newer version/better version?
    2. Since I have a SWG, do I also need the Taylor K-1766 test kit also? If not, is there a better/different one?
    3. Any other test kits/equipment recommended?

    Thanks in advance. When I determine more details about the equipment, pump, filter, etc I will add to signature.
