Hi everyone, I am in the process of getting our first pool installed. It will be a salt water pool and I want to get the best test kit out there. If money was no object (within reason), what is the best test kit for a SW pool? Is the TF-100XL still the best or is there something else I should get because of it being salt water? Also, there seems to be a bunch of options on the right hand side of this page, what (if any) should I include?
TF-100 Test Kit ™
Thanks so much!

SmartStir or Speedstir and K1766 salt test kit are great additions.

No real need for the XL version.

The XL is more FAS-DPD. Really needed if you have a green swamp and will be doing a drawn out SLAM Process. You should not have that issue!
