Exactly what I needed

Friday, October 29, 2010

I have been struggling with testing strips or inconvenienced by running samples to the local pool/spa store. For the latter, by the time I returned to our vacation home a day or two later, the balance was different of course. The test strips work reasonablity well for several items, but was absolutely worthless for pH (shades of orange and washed out), and not accurate enough to get target total Alk. I will likely use this primarily for the pH and Alk, and am happy that I can get refills of individual reagent bottles as needed. This was fairly simple to use, and provided repeatable results within about 2% when I performed a couple tests one right after the other. The ONLY improvements I could recommend are: 1) make the power time-out longer. It's annoying if you have to rebalance between substance tests. 2) Provide a removable foam stand to hold the tubes upright while you perform the test. The case is really nice and holds the tubes safely and securely for transport and storage, but it's not suitable for holding the tubes while testing. You really need a good horizontal surface to rest the tubes on as it is. I'm going to have to install a shelf by my hot tub.

Ease of use. Accuracy

Increase power time-out. Provide removable foam stand for tubes while testing.

Awesome!

1. I use a Nature 2 cartridge for sanitation and need to maintain 0.5ppm of chlorine. 2. I use a Solar Attic pool heater which has a copper core so PH must be pretty stable and I use non-chlorine shock to help protect the core but it lowers the PH. I started out with the usual pool/spa dip strip which worked OK for the 0.5ppm of chlorine but was pretty useless for any details of PH and it really doesn't show you the locked up chlorine. I then tried the liquid reagent pool test kits with color matching but they are more suitable for 1-5ppm chlorine and are useless for locked up chlorine. It occurred to me one day that the pool company uses a digital readout, maybe I can buy a home model ... and here it is. This puppy is awesome! I simply insert a clean vial of 5ml pool water to calibrate the unit. Then add 5 drops of fclA and 5 drops of fclB, cap, shake once, reinsert and hit the button and I get a reading of x.xx ... couldn't be any easier! Then I uncap, add 5 drops of fclC, cap, shake once, reinsert and hit the button and I get a reading of x.xx Total Chlorine. Every liquid reagent in the kit is 5 drops. The CYA is a tablet. I read the instructions once and have had it memorized since ... very easy. I do the 2 chlorine tests and the PH test 1-3 times/day in about 3 minutes from "grab the kit" to "put the kit back on the shelf". Once a week I test them all in about 6 minutes. It takes 2 minutes to wait for the cya tablet to disolve so you could save time by starting the cya first then doing all the rest during the 2 minutes then finishing up the CYA ... your call. If you need to have real numbers ... this is the the tool to have.

Learned the process in one time through the instructions. 5 drops for each test. Digital readout to 0.01 resolution. Similar to what your "pool guy" uses

Slower than a "dip stick" but hey ... you want numbers or not?
