how long will test strips last and does there need to be protected storage
Hi Charles, these are good for 2 years after the date of manufacture. Store them in regular (indoor) climate-controlled area for the most accurate results and the longest life.
I just purchased these test strips from a pool store but I'm having a hard time telling the difference between the colors, is there something better?
These test strips should be used with the digital reader they are designed for. The digital reader will display the numeric values of the pH, alkalinity and chlorine.

TruTest strips and monitor
Using the TruTest strips with the TruTest monitor is so easy and fast compared to other means of testing. It also gives me an exact reading. I like to keep the pool pH around 7.4 and this allows me to adjust the chemicals better. I also find I am willing to test more frequently (about twice a week) because it is so easy and accurate and this helps maintain the pH at that level. I keep a log when I test, what the results are, and how much chemical I add. By maintaining the balance, I never have problems with eyes or skin, and by maintaining the pH at that level, scale does not build up so fast in our hard water.
