    Hello from The Woodlands, Texas!

    New pool owner here in Texas. Just let the pool service go and I'm about to embark with my own maintenance.

    I use the TF-100 from http://tftestkits.net/TF-100-Test-Kit-p4.html

    I added the Taylor salt test as I have a SWCG. That kit was $22 on Amazon.

    Glad to see you are in The Woodlands. We have lived here in The Woodlands for almost 25 years. It's an awesome place but trees and pool don't always mix well. Good Luck.
