Keep your pool sufficiently monitored for salt with the Aquachek 561161 Swimming Pool White Salt Titrators Test Kit Strips. Ideal for customers who have salt generator systems, AquaChek Salt Titrators measure salt (sodium chloride) levels from 400 to 7,000 ppm using a small water sample. It takes just a few minutes. Maintaining appropriate salt levels helps ensure salt generators will be able to produce the correct amount of chlorine to keep water clean and free of contaminants. The most economical way to buy AquaChek Salt test strips is in this 40 count package. For a clean and healthy pool, test the water at each end a minimum of twice a week!
Top Customer Reviews
The test is super easy and quick (3-4 minutes):
1) Collect a water sample from the deep end of the pool by dipping your arm to your elbow. I use an old spice glass jar, which is about 1-inch in diameter. You need to fill it up only 1 inch high.
2) Place the test strip inside but make sure it is only immersed about 1 inch.
3) After 3-4 minutes or as soon as the yellow band at the top has turned brown, take note of the white peak that has streaked up the strip. Read the number at that point and convert it to the salt ppm level based on the scale printed on the bottle. I'll upload a photo of one of my test strips.
Please note that this bottle contains 40 strips. Although you can take a water sample to your local store for free testing, I like to test it myself at home and then I don't have to be pressured to get the water sample tested within 45 minutes. Like I said earlier, the store uses the same strips. They also sell the same strips, but the bottles have only 10 strips so the cost is a bit higher. According to our pool manual, the recommended maintenance schedule is to test the salt level monthly, so this bottle should last over 3 years. With that said, I received my bottle in May 2012 and the expiration date is March 2014, which is less than 3 years... Since we are adding salt to our pool, we are testing more frequently until we reach the recommended 3,400 ppm level, so I will probably consume all the strips before the expiration date. By the way, we do have a weekly pool maintenance person, but I like to test our pool water myself, since we have been adding bags of salt.
Being a chemical engineer, I have considered buying the digital meter for a more precise reading, but it's unnecessary, more costly and would rather not deal with the hassle of calibration fluids. Overall, I would recommend the AquaCheck Quantab salt strips as well as the other AquaCheck strips, which I also use. The vendor was very quick for responding and shipping too.
