    If you don't have a good test kit, then having the pool store run the tests is better than strips. Please consider getting yourself a good test kit such as the TF 100 or the Taylor K-2006 from tftestkits.net.

    Pool store testing can serve a purpose, but the advice on this forum is based on accurate self-testing with a good test kit. No one will take care of your pool or know your pool like you do, so the first bit of advice is to get yourself a good test kit and only then, you can trust your test results and be in control of your pool.

    Agree with the above. Get a good kit and learn how to use it. It's intimidating at first, but quickly becomes second nature.

    I've gotten some very inaccurate results from my pool store, but maybe your is better than mine.
