    Strips or liquid test results

    I have the Taylor test kit for salt and a kit for testing pH, TA Calcium, CYA.
    I also have the strips. They read totally different.
    Salt reads much lower using the strips then the Taylor liquid test.
    Which is more accurate, the liquid or strips? I don't know which to use. Is there anyway to know for sure?
    With the FAS-DPD chlorine tester my TA reads 80 and the strip is 140.
    Not sure what to do. Any advice is appreciated.

    Stay with and TRUST the liquids. Pitch the strips. STOP second guessing yourself. Welcome to the forum.

    Bye, bye strips! ONLY use your Taylor kit.
