    Ordering a test kit, double check my order!? :)

    My pool just over a month old and I'm ready to order my test kit.

    I was going to order the TF-100 w/ the Taylor K-1766 Salt Test (Add $21.95 ) http://tftestkits.net/TFTestkits-TF-100-p4.html

    Does this look good and any other tests or equipement you would recommend?

    Pool stats in sig.

    TY!

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    That is going to be a great start

    How does your pool look? If it is green, the the XL option is good to have.
    The SpeedStir makes the testing even easier.
    And while I am spending your money, the filter gauges they sell are very nice and a very good price if you are getting free shipping

    Get the XL option now and save on shipping.

    The rest of the reagents are standard Taylor stuff you can pick up at a pool store if you suddenly run out. The FAS-DPD powder and drops are next to impossible to find in stores. Once you get obsessed with your Junior Chemist Playset, you'll be burning through test reagents at an amazing rate, so get the hard-to-find refill now.

    Pool looks nice and clear so far.

    I will add the XL kit, $12 bucks to have extra on hand sounds good.

    Thanks again!
