    Do I need a salt test kit?

    We just built a new salt water pool (Jandy AquaPure SWG) and I'm about to order the TF-100 so I can start tracking the water. Do I need the salt water test kit also? Or can I just rely on my equipment to tell me the salinity?

    Get the salt test kit, its not that expensive and it comes in handy.

    Often you can get away with not having a salt test the first year, when the SWG is new. But after that it is nice to have a salt test just to be sure the SWG hasn't gotten wildly far off of correct.
