Water Testers??

Postby steq184 » Fri 03 Aug, 2007 12:59

I have been using the test strips since we had the pool, now want to upgrade to the electronic meters etc for chlorine, ph,alc etc.
Would be great if it also tested for bromine as then could also use it for the hot tub.
I am in the UK, can anyone recommend what to buy and where please.
Not really want to spend the earth either.

You will "spend the earth" for an electronic tester...you will need two. One fore ph and one for chlorine.

Why not just get a good test kit for $50? Even less in euros...

I noticed this post was from 2007 but anyway,I have a Lamotte ColorQ kit which tests all that and cya.recently had to have it upgraded and it works a lot better.the alk reads aren't as accurate as a taylor but it's within 10-20.

I like the ColorQ and mainly because it takes the guess work away, especially on combined chlorine. They also use less drops than LaMotte.
