WATER QUALITY: SPA & POOL TEST STRIPS 3-in-1

100 strips/bottle


Have you ever looked at the testing strips you use test the water of your hot tub or pool?

Does it make sense to you?

If so, congratulations!


Fast, simple, safe and accurate.


1. IS YOUR POOL READY FOR ACTIONS?

You should test your pool weekly and add chlorine/other chemicals as needed to keep water clean, clear and free of algae.

Chlorine

Chlorine is sanitizer that help keep the pool and spa water free from germs and algae build up. Testing for these will indicate the active amount of these sanitizer in the water.

Alkalinity / pH

Alkalinity and pH measure the amount of acidity in the pool and spa water. Maintaining a proper balance of Alkalinity and pH will help keep the water from developing scale or cause corrosion.


2. HOW IT WORKS?


Within 60 seconds, you can know precisely what level of chlorine is in the water, as well as whether your pH and Total Alkalinity are balanced.

  1. Simply dip our water quality test strips 3-in-1 into the water, remove immediately for the best results.
  2. Hold the strip horizontally for 15 seconds for Chlorine (or 60 seconds for pH and Total Alkalinity) to allow accurate readings.
  3. Then compare against the color chart and take action if needed.

3. CHART READING GUIDELINE



Do not wait until your eyes burn and your swimsuit bleaches white to test your pool - just dip a test strip! . 



(A) Typical Guidelines for SWIMMING POOL:

  • Total Alkalinity: 80 – 120 ppm
  • Free Chlorine: 1 – 3 ppm
  • pH: 7.2 – 7.8 ppm



(B) Typical Guidelines for SPA:

  • Total Alkalinity: 80 – 120 ppm
  • Free Chlorine: 3 – 5 ppm
  • pH: 7.2 – 7.8 ppm



4. EXAMPLE

There are a number of things to consider when maintaining pool pH: Testing, interpreting the test results, and correcting the pH level. After tested, this is just a weird color coded and a set of number? Basically the information doesn't translate to an action to be taken. Here we try to decode the water code.

Pool results above shows that:

  • Total Alkalinity: 40 ppm (80 – 120 ppm)
  • Free Chlorine: 3 ppm (1 – 3 ppm) 
  • pH: 6.4 ppm (7.2 – 7.8 ppm)

If the pH is low – meaning the water is acidic – swimmers can suffer itching skin, rashes, burning eyes and dry hair. 

The pH level in pool water can directly affect the efficiency of the sanitizer, free chlorine levels become difficult to maintain in acidic water. If the pool water is less than 7.2, your pool water is too acidic and can be damaging your pool equipment. Higher than 7.8, your pool water is either already hazy or soon will be and scale can begin forming in your pool. Therefore, pool owner need to immediately correct either of these cases, as the pool water is out of balance. 


5. PACKAGING DETAILS
