    Hi, just wanted to say hello start off by saying thank you for providing this web site. My wife and I were really on the fence about purchasing a house with a pool but after quite a bit of research here we have taken the dive literally. Going get a new titration kit tomorrow so I can post some levels and plug into the calculator.

    Again a pre thanks to all the members here and supporters of this site.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Which kit are you getting? There are several kits out there that are DPD only. What you want is FAS-DPD. The TF-100 from is your best value. More of the reagents you will be using. Best value is adding the XL option with the speedstir.

    Please read Pool School, linked in the upper right of this page.

    Check this section out about test kits: pool-school/pool_test_kit_comparison
