I got my first pool last summer, so I was (and still is) a pool newbie. I just want to say that one of the best advice I got so far, was last summer when waterbear and Jasonlion told me to buy a water Test Kit. I then bought the TFP Test Kit. Very simple to use, very usefull (a must). I was not sure at the beginning, but now I know it is a must.
So if you are new to the pool world and want to do it right, buy a test kit, you won't regret it.
I live in Canada, so I was very sad (almost crying here ) that the TF test kit cannot be sold anymore to Canadian customers. No choice I gess .
I kept reading the Forum the whole winter and always find it interesting (always learning new stuff). Keep up the good work.
[Edited by SeanB to reflect correct name of kit, the TF-100. While we do recommend the tf-100, it is not sold or owned by TFP nor do we profit from kit sales.]
