    G'day Aussie
    This test kit has an FC test, a ph test, a TA test and an acid demand test, cost of $33.75
    The FC test will only test up to 5 FC, which is not high enough
    You also do not have a CYA test (crucial) or a calcium test (not as crucial for you as you have fibreglass not plaster, but still need to know this)

    I would just go ahead and order a kit from Clear choice. Has all the tests you need, also comes with standards so you can check your testing. Should last you a full season of testing and refills are available. Service and quick delivery from these guys too. My last order was on a Saturday and I got the test on a Thursday.

    For you to get the salt water version its $158. Money well spent imho

    Welcome to TFP! Good to have you here

    The 4in1 is good value and won't go to waste if you already have it, but +1 to Caco's review and recommendation.

    Another drawback to the 4in1 is that you can't do an overnight chlorine loss test (OCLT), which can be a crucial part of TFPC.

    The 4in1 is fine for pH, acid demand, and TA. It's adequate to read "around 1 ppm FC", "around 2-5 ppm FC", and "solid 5 or more ppm FC"
