Pink test strip

Postby Cekkk » Thu 25 Jun, 2020 14:48

This is only my second year with a pool and I know I have a lot to learn. But I'm thinking the test strips are, for me anyway, more accurate than the drops.kits. Who knows when it started to turn blue? is it blue, is it blue enough? Anyhow, my chemistry seems pretty good except I keep getting a pink color for the pH level. Pink ain't on the scale. I'm thinking I'm just a tad hi. Any opinions? Thanks
Oh. These are Leslie's 7 in 1

Test strips are commonly called guess strips, not accurate at all
You really need to get yourself a decent FAS/DPD test kit (Taylor K2006c or TF Testkits TF100 in the states) to get accurate results
