I have been using tthese for 5 years now and like the fact that they show 7 different categories. They have been acurate compared to my actual pool suppliers checks done with a machine

Test strips seem to be giving an accurate reading. I do not have anything to compare against but the pool water looks awesome It was a little cloudy; the test strip was showing me low on chlorine. I added the chlorine the test strip read good for pool and the water is sparkling now.

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.
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!

Great test kit
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.
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.

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?!
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

Simple and fast
Certainly better than test strips that give you different readings testing 3 to 4 times.
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.

Easy to use and very accurate
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.
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.

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.
