    Test kit type?

    I'm new to the forum and new to pool ownership. I've been reading about BBB for maintence and know the trick is to monitor and adjust regularly. I haven't had a chance to look around on here much.

    What is the test kit that recommended?

    Thanks.

    Here you go: Recommended Test Kits

    I recommend the TF-100 from tftestkits.net and add a SpeedStir to get free shipping

    Welcome to the forum....... There is an article in Pool School comparing the test kits. We recommend the TF-100 or Taylor K-2006. Best first question of the day award!

    Thanks for the info! Sorry about the misplaced thread. I'll spend some time navigating before I post again.

    Pool was installed last week and I'm excited and want to start correctly!!!
