    What is the best test kit out there

    Greetings and Salutations !

    I have a 19,800 gallon salt system fiberglass pool in Marietta, GA.

    I would like a water testing kit that tests FAC, pH, TA, CYA. calcium hardness, salinity and phosphate level.

    What is the best one out there in your opinion?

    15K gal / IG / Fiberglass / Installed Feb 2013 / Ranger Sand filter by W.Cooper
    SWCG (Aqua Plus by Hayward ... either PL-Plus or PL-Plus-20 / Filled via Public Water
    2hp Waterco Pump / Using Taylor K-2006 /

    The best kit for your swimming pool is the TF-100 from bar none! If you need to test salt level, get the Taylor K-1766 from them and get the Speedstir while you're at it. There is absolutely no need to test phosphates so don't even worry about testing that. That's a test the pool store/industry came up with in order to sell you more product and increase their bottom line.

    To recap, go to and order;
    (1) TF-100
    (1) K-1766
    (1) SpeedStir
    And optional (1) R-7065 CYA Standard (to help you fine tune your testing method)

    And no, Dave doesn't pay me to say that. I say it because it's true. There is no better place or kit.

    I didn't buy the TF-100 as they can't ship across the border, so I bought the Taylor equivalent.
    That said, I recommend the TF-100, it's got everything you need and is a good price. Just an unbiased opinion.
