Water testing

Keeping your pool and spa clean has never been easier. There are two basic types of testing methods used by most consumers: liquid kits and test strips.

Liquid kits: Liquid Test Kits require that you put a sample of water into a specific testing plastic container and then carefully add drops of chemical reagents, watching for a change in the colour of the Colour changes caused by the reagents within the water can then be compared to the colour indicators on the plastic container and add chemicals as needed.

Test strips: Test Strip Kits are the easiest method for pool and spa water They are fast and simple to use because they eliminate the need to measure samples and count drops. Typically, you would simply dip a strip in the water for 5-10 seconds and then remove it. You then compare the colours on the strip to the colour chart on the label and add chemicals as needed.
