    Which Pool Chemistry Test Kit Should we buy?

    I know I've read somewhere, which test kit you all seem to suggest, but I can't find it. Please advise.

    Thanks

    The TF-100 is the kit of choice and the one I use. It's the best value. You can get one at TFTestkits.net. Get the SpeedStir option. You won't regret that also.

    I don't always test my water, but when I do, I use the TF-100 test kit !!LOL 😎

    Thanks, I'm pretty sure that's the one someone mentioned before. Gotta go get that ordered.

    Another question. We have made the switch to SWG, what should we be testing our water for, and how regularly will we need to test? Our SWG does not tell us where our PH is.

    It is important to understand why you test....maybe more than exactly what you test for.

    read "The ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry" up in Pool School....It has information on the parameters you test, what they are and why you test for them and it will give you ranges for each parameter.

    I just came running back over here to add that I found pool school and have just had a good read, so I got all my questions answered. Here's hoping this year will be better than the previous.
