    Salt Testing?

    I am going to be installing a SWG on my AGP this spring..was just wondering what method is best for testing salt content in pool?

    Test strips seem to be easy, but are they reliable?

    Thanks for any info!!

    Fresh Aquacheck salt specific test strips are accurate to +/-200ppm, which is more than enough (tfteskits.net carries them as well as the taylor drop based kit)

    I have the Taylor K-1766 salt test kit and it does a great job of testing the salt. You do have to be careful to watch the endpoint closely. According to a lot of people on here the strips do a great job too.

    Aquachek makes the best salt strips around.

    Depending on which brand system you have you may get a good accurate salt reading from it.

    Thanks everyone!!! I figured the strips would be fine, so that is what I will use.
