Easy and accurate
on June 7, 2011
Much more accurate than test strips. I use this kit for both my pool and hot tub.
While you're at it, ween yourself from all those pool chemicals.... all you really need to keep you pool sparkling clear, balanced and sanitized is 1)regular household bleach (6% liquid chlorine), 2) baking soda for total alkalinity (google the chemical name of your total alkalinity product and you'll be surprised to find out it's simply baking soda), 3) Prestone Driveway Heat (almost 100% calcium chloride aka Tums antacid haha) for calcium, and 4) muriatic acid from Home Depot for PH down.
I've owned a pool for 2 years now and those are the only chemicals I've ever used. Not 1 algae bloom and my filters can go forever between cleanings. Yes, liquid chlorine bleach requires that you actually test your pool a few times a week and physically add chlorine yourself, rather than throwing a chlorine puck in and wondering why you have to keep buying various pool products to fix "this problem and then that problem."
