We are in the process of ordering a new T-15 cell for our chlorine generator and we figure it's a good idea to find a reliable device to check the salt by hand as well as using the data that the display shows us. We had no idea why our salt reading was getting lower and lower every day so we just kept adding salt - only to check it with some strips (after reading things online abut the cell going bad) and found that our salt level was not 2200 it was actually closer to 4000!! only thing is that we live in the Bahamas - so we had to pay $30 for only TEN strips. This doesn't seem like a smart way to continue to monitor the salt levels
We would like to find a digital tester that will test salt along with other chemical levels (mostly chlorine levels) but we don't have the luxury of being able to purchase and return if we find that we don't like what we've ordered (since we don't live state side...)
Does anyone have any recommendations of a devide that you've found to be reliable over time?
