I used this kit and compared the results with those received from my local pool company test. They were the same.

For the pool owner who does not want to run to the pool store for every water check. All you need in one compact test kit. Very easy to understand directions.

Needed to get water chemistry balanced in a newly re-plastered pool so needed to test more than Chlorine, PH, and Alkalinity. I followed charts in the kit regarding what to dump into the pool to get PH, calcium hardness, alkalinity, cyanuric acid in acceptable range. Numbers were within 2% - 3% of what I was shooting for upon retest (waited about 8 hours to retest) so I believe the kit is pretty accurate. I would purchase it again.
Makes test much easier, no colors to try and match
I have only used this about 5 times but very easy, directions make it easy once you get the hang of it.

Easy & Efficient
This test kit is easy to use and accurate. Much better then the color matching. The bottles last me about 1.5 months with daily testing. The only problem I have had with this kit is that the tester didn't work after the first summer the pool was open, about 3 months. I did keep it outside at our pool house so I don't know if cold affects it that much. The price is not so bad, but I don't want to have to buy a new one each summer.
Just wish there were more of the regents that you use more. Some regents may last years and some a month depending on how high your chlorine is

This is the best test kit on the market for a home pool owner. I have used many different kits in the past 15 years of owning a pool, and this is by far the best. Well worth the extra money.

The Taylor Series of Pool/Spa Test products are by far the easiest to use on the market. I purchased this kit for both my pool and spa. I get accurrate results each and every time unlike the comparatively expensive test strips that are available on the market. This product is a must for anyone with a pool or spa!
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?!

Another great high tech gadget
Wow is this thing sweet. Easy to use, just dip in water, and place on meter and press the button and 10 seconds later you have every thing you need to know. No more drops, no test tube things, no more making sure you have the right amount of water in the test tube, and no more color matching, just a small test strip, and meter. Plus another high tech. gadget (witch I love to have).

Works for Me!
I bought this tester to use for a quick daily test. If we have doubts about the results we break out the drop tester and so far the tests have been very close. I am very pleased with the ease and speed of the results. Not having to hassle with the drops is a big plus and getting quick results is just an additional bonus. I would have no problem recommending this tester to anyone.
Certainly better than test strips that give you different readings testing 3 to 4 times.

We just had a salt water pool put in almost 2 months ago, our pool tech was testing the pool I ask him what he was using to test it he said a saltdip. So I order one ! Simple to use I.love it Everyone needs one for salt water pool. Great
These strips are great. I no longer feel like a chemist messing around with different bottles of solutions to figure out my levels. Just dip wait a few seconds a see what your levels are and they have a nice chart for matching colors. The only one that is a bit sketchy is the PH level although you know when you are at 6.8 it is just hard to tell the difference between 7.2 and 7.6 which doesn't really matter since both of those levels are good.

Purchased this for the start of the pool season. I love the seven water areas it tests. It really is a great help in keeping our pool water balanced and clean.

7 Aqua Test Strips
The strips are great and relatively inexpensive for what you get. They are easy to use and work quickly. When I took my water into the store they found the same results that my test strips showed. I used to use the little bottles of liquid and always had a hard time reading the results. These strips are right on. I am having trouble now that the color chart faded. The color chart comes in a clear plastic case that is attached to the bottle but even though I had the bottle under the bench and out
... read more of the direct light, they faded.I would like to be able to copy/print out a copy of the color chart but am unable to find a copy of it on line. Overall I would buy it again and copy the color chart before the season begins.
I have used these for years and my readings have always been spot on with what The Pool places get with their test kits, for the items checked.
It takes a few tries to do it properly, reading the instructions is a good place to start! Not trying to snipe at anyone, the instructions just elaborate on how to get a good reading...

The range of test strips colors is so wide your guessing at the readings. The AquaChek TruTest meter helps me get a better results without guessing.
