Which is more accurate: AquaCheck trutest digital or the strips you compare the colors to the bottle?
I used them both and got totally different results? Which one to I believe? One says the clorine is 6.9 hi and the other shows its 0.

Hey There!

In the past I have noticed that test strips have been inaccurate and would display lower levels of chemicals than they really are.

The aqua check also can be off at times, depending on the calibration. It is easy to recalibrate, however, making this method a little more trustworthy.

Hope This Helps

Get yourself a proper test kit. Either the Taylor K-2006 or the TFTestkits TF-100 where the latter has more of the reagents you use the most so is more economical.
