AquaChek TruTest Digital Test Strip Reader
AquaChek Digital Test Kit
I purchased this meter 7 years ago because I am color blind and had problems reading the manual test strips. Store that I purchased hot tub from was 20 miles away. I find this tester very sinple to use and very durable for I have dropped it several times. I use it to check the pool in the summer and Hot tub year round. The chemical levels are a little different for the pool vs. the tub but that is not a problem with this meter. I find it much easier to add the correct amount of chemicals once I collected enough data from this meter. I still take my pool water to the pool store for the first test each year but I maintain the correct levels throughout the summer using the meter.

I am not unused to handling test equipment, although I haven't done so in quite a while.
I went through the 25 strips provided and have started on the extra supply I ordered. The only full readings I got were suspect eg pH would show7.8 and color strips yielded about 7.0.
After running tests both ways a couple of weeks ago, I also took a water sample to a local pool supply, and found the color strips results were in line, and the Aqua chek numbers were not.

Best Purchase Ever!
This is just like going to the pool store and asking them to test your water. It gives you the number (PH is 6.8) and if it is ok or lo. Genious! I havn't been to the pool store for testing in a month. When my husband suggested getting this, I just figured another stupid gadget that he likes to get! Great gadget-NOT STUPID! Best purchase ever!

Purchasing this monitor for testing pool water chemistry was one of the best investments I made. The procedure is easy and the results have been, no more expensive chemical purchases. I know what I need and do not waste time and money to keep my water sparkling and clear. With less maintenance, we'ver enjoyed the pool more than ever! Isn't that what summer is all about?!
