    Pooltime Test Strip Chart Discolored

    The color chart for my 6 part pooltime test strips has been ruined.
    Does anyone know where I can get a chart without buying another package of test strips?
    Anyone have a color pdf file?

    The feeling here is that test strips are not very accurate. A good test kit is recommended, as pointed out in "PoolSchool"

    Welcome to TFP.

    As Dave said, we don't recommend strips for anything but salt. If you want to take control of your pool you should really look into a good drop based test kit.

    If you just want a color sheet, someone might see this and take pity on you and mail you one they haven't thrown away yet.

    They come in handy for Borates as well

    Unfortunately, these a specific strips and not the 6way "one and done" type you are asking about. They are seldom accurate and provide inconsistent results, given the require color comparision vs color change.
