For the test kit the TF-100 from tftestkits.net is the best all around bang for the buck. They also have a K-2006C and it’s just as good but has smaller supplies so it will need replacing sooner. Get the salt drop kit from the same place. ( K-1766.).

Do not use regular test strips or salt test strips. You will be trying to figure out your chlorine levels and the strip will say you’re pregnant. How much chlorine will you have to add though? I mean, congratulations on the baby and all, but It’s crazy and of no help.

Welcome to TFP! Once you get your kit on order please take a look at this.ABCs of Pool Water Chemistry We do things a little different and it works out way better. We don't sell anything here, just a lot of free expert advice that's never geared to sell you something. Ask any questions you make have.

Again, welcome aboard!

The TF-100 being the least expensive, is also available with the K-1766 kit which tests salt content. That's what I use and is the most accurate on the general market. This kit uses Taylor reagents which are the gold standard, in my mind.

May I please ask you to specify your state/region/province/country (Pick one) as to where "Westbend" is?
It sounds silly, but we deal with folks from all over the world so there surely could be more than one "Westbend".
<---- Westbend, WHERE?

THANKS!!!

I third or fourth the recommendations on the test kit! I use the TF-100 and the K-1766 salt kit as well!

At first I thought you lived in Westview! (Those watching Marvel’s Wandavision will get that reference!)
