Thread: TF Test Kit

    TF Test Kit

    We are in the process of having an 18x36, in-ground, vinyl lined pool, with SWG installed. Weather permitting, they should be done with construction at the end of the week. I have been searching and reading this site and have found a wealth of information. I am going to order a TF 100 test kit. My question is this: When using the TF 100 kit, is there still a need to have a pool store test the water, or is this kit all inclusive?

    Welcome to TFP!

    The TF-100 is better than what most pool stores can do except for metal testing.

    Actually, the opposite. You will be better informed if you will trust your own testing and do not take pool store testing seriously.

    Unless you suspect iron in your pool, the TF-100 is all inclusive.

    That's exactly what I wanted to hear. I have a good friend that has had a pool for several years. She has questioned the integrity of the local pool company and does not trust their results. I would much prefer to do my own testing.

    If you need to test for salt, I don't think the TF-100 does that, but you can buy salt strips from TFTest Kits.
    POOL: Intex ultra new in 2014 (32 x 16 x 52) (seasonal; on concrete pad covered with 1.5" extruded or whatever foam insulation sheets - ugly, but comfy); added a through-wall skimmer; I add salt for feel. EQUIPMENT: Pentair SuperFlo pump (1HP, 2SPD); Pentair cartridge filter (200 sq. ft); Pentair MasterTemp natural gas heater (400,000 btu) Climate/Location: Eastern Nebraska
