I jumped into pool ownership late in the season this year. We got an 18'x48" easy set, I figured it would be good for me to practice pool maintenance on; as well as give the kids a couple years to get taller before we switch to a deeper hard side pool.
I've learned a lot here that is helping me plan to be ready for next year. Two things I know I need to do heading into next year are to upgrade to a sand filter and get a better test kit.
So my question on the test kit is; TF-100 or K-2006? Our water supply has a very high TA (290 ish from the tap), so that is something I will definitely need to be able to monitor and adjust. Should I lean towards the K-2006 since it includes the acid demand test, or can I do what I need to with the TF-100? I'm leaning towards the TF-100 because of the association with the forum, but I've also seen people ask for acid demand results dealing with TA.
