Why we love Pool Test Strips
Pool testing strips are a fast and efficient way of testing your pool water. Some test strips will quickly analyse your pool/spa water in a matter of seconds, giving you reading for up to 7 different tests on one strip. To use a pool test strip simply dip the strip into a sample of water and remove it immediately. Hold the strips for 15 seconds (without shaking off excess water) then compare each testing pad to the colour chart on the label.
Best Pool Test Kits in 2022
Still, our pool testing kits remain a firm favourite among Australian pool owners. In 2022 we are certainly seeing more of our customers moving away from old-school testing to a digital pool testing kit. Electronic pen pool testers feature accurate sensors to provide you with immediate results on the status of your pool water.
