I used a liquid test kit to test the chlorine in my pool water and ended up with a red instead of a shade of yellow. What would cause this?

When using any test kit (liquid or strips) the test results should be within the color range on the chart. If they are not, you have "interference" Usually interference can be caused by the presence of metals in the water or high chlorine reading. Also make certain that the pool water is being circulated when you take your sample.

The age of the reagents may play a factor. If the chlorine level is really high, then the color may flash from blue to yellow instead of green to red. You can try adding a small amount of chlorine neutralizer to the sample to see if that helps

I'm in need of a kit for testing my saltwater hot tub. Does this kit have everything I need to test the levels?
 Reply

That will test the main chemicals, but will not test the salt level. Part number NP221 will test your salt level though.

For how long will the chemicals in test kits provide accurate results? Years / months? Test strips?
 Reply

A  Answered on 2/20/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alan M.

The reagents in liquid test kits should be replaced every year. The test strips remain accurate for one year as long as they are kept dry and stored in a cool location out of the sun.We recommend testing be done inside so the sunlight does not distort the colors.
