- for testing chemical levels
As has been mentioned, it is very important to test the water in your pool on a regular basis
Using test-strips to monitor the water is probably the easiest way of doing it, unless you suffer from colour-blindness
Like so many products these days, unreliable fakes flood the market and whilst they may appear to be an economy they are most definitely not
Incorrect reading of your pool chemistry can cost you not just in terms of wasted chemicals but can also leave the pool-water in a dangerously unhealthy condition - leaving your family open to potentially life-threatening pathogens
You rely on the results of your water-testing to determine what to add to, or subtract from, your pool to ensure it is a clean, healthy environment for your family
Would you trust your family's' health to something bought for half-price at the corner shop? No, neither would I!

Test-strips are available for the measurement of pretty much every conceivable pool-water parameter, including, Chlorine, Bromine, pH, TA, TDS, Copper (from algaecides, copper sulphate, Ionizers or multi action tablets), Zinc, Phosphates, Salt, Active Oxygen, Hydrogen Peroxide; plus many others
If you decide to go with test-strip testing make sure that the strips you use are from a reliable source, and not from a company that you, or the Pools Industry, have never heard of!
