    What (if any) options to get with the test kit

    Hi Jason,
    I'm getting ready to buy my test kit. When I went to the website, I noticed there are other options to get with the kit.
    This is all new to me. Can you make any suggestions on what (if any) options to get with the kit. We have a 9 X 18 Intex Ultra Frame Pool with a hayward cartridge filter/pump. I'm going with the BBB method (of course) for the first time.

    Much appreciated,

    Have a great 4th of July!

    If you have a SWG get a salt test. If you are doing a baqua conversion or currently have algae get the XL option. The SpeedStir is highly recommended, but certainly optional.

    The SampleSizer saves a lot of time when measuring the volume of the water sample. You just fill a 9198 test cell with water then insert the SampleSizer in the cell. It'll displace the exact amount of water to leave either 10 or 25 mL in the cell (depending on which end of the tool was inserted).

    It's a neat little engineering feat. Saves time too.

    Thank you! That's good to know. I'll feel like a real chemist!
