    Salt test?

    Right now I have this for testing salt: AquaChek 561140A White Salt Test Strips

    Are the strips good enough? My pool is fairly small so I don't want to get a more expensive one if the strips does its job well. If not then what salt test kit should I be looking for? Thank you in advance.

    The strips do a decent job getting you in the ballpark. If the SWG displays the salt, that is the most important to keep happy. Although be mindful of increasing discrepancies between the SWG and test strip.
