Test your pool water daily to ensure that your pool water chemistry is balanced and your water is safe for swimming. This is the first, most important step to proper pool care.
AQUA CHEK TEST STRIPS
THE QUICK, EASY WAY TO TEST POOL WATER!
No more vials, reagents and messy drops. Use Aqua Chek's simple, yet accurate test strips instead of that complicated liquid test kit. Just dip and read the results in 30 seconds.
The 3-Way strips test for Alkalinity, pH, and Free chlorine or bromine.
The 6-Way strips test for Alkalinity, pH, Total Chlorine, Free Chlorine, Calcium Hardness, and Cyanuric Acid (stabilizer levels).
The colors on my test strip don't match what is on the chart. The chlorine is a very dark purple and everything else is lighter than the rest of the chart.
It seems like I constantly have to add chlorine to my swimming pool. Every time I test my chlorine, it seems low (even a few hours after adding chlorine). What can I do?
I would first make sure that you are testing the total chlorine AND free chlorine. If they are not the same reading, you may have a chlorine lock. If the chlorine levels are the same, I would check the pH, alkalinity and cyanuric acid levels.
(5 out of 5 stars) These strips make it so easy to maintain healthy pool water

Pros: easy to use
Cons: you have to have the container with you to read the results
The six way test strips are great. We used to use the little tube thingy with the drops. These strips cover all the necessary checks and balances. We have very hard water and calcium builds up on the sides of the pool. The strips help us keep the hardness and alkalinity balanced.
