    Where do you keep your test reagents?

    Humidity and Heat are the enemies of your test kit. If you keep your reagents outside, they will breakdown a lot faster. Always keep your test kit indoors and store in a cool dry place. You can certainly test outside by the pool if you prefer but the reagents and kit should always come indoors.

    Keep mine in the kitchen cabinet by the sink. Wife don't mind as much now, since the pool always looks good!
