    Can I test my own salt level?

    My swg stopped giving me a reading on salt level. I don't know why. I also tried to adjust the t-15 number but I'm getting strange symbols like a busted calculator screen. The pool store gives me a salt reading but i don't want to go there any more

    The Taylor salt test is recommended. Good results as long as you follow the instructions.

    Not really. If you are comfortable doing the other tests (CYA, CH etc.) then you will be fine. If not, then the salt strips are an acceptable alternative.
