    TFT-100 (salt)

    Quick question -- what's the difference, and what shoudl I get?
    - Taylor K-1766 salt test ($22)
    - Salt test strips - Aqua Chek ($11)

    Thanks,
    Keith
    About to build an in-ground free-from gunite pool in the back yard (no spa). Currently estimated at 19,000 gallons. Likely going with a SWG.

    I'm sure most will say that the strips are not as accurate as a reagent style test.

    I use a electronic TDS salt tester, giving me the PPM on the display. Works fine for me

    I use the K-1766 test. Works well.

    I too prefer the drop based kit. Although all the salt test are supposedly only good to about +/-400ppm.
