Whats simple test kits that can measure chlorine above 5.0 so donít have to use the dilution test. Like the cheap chlorine and PH test kits.
Do they make such a thing?
This is what I need the most and have only had a problem like recently every 4 years. Average a problem every 4 years out of the past 25 years with a pool.
So then I can just take to the pool store to test if needed.
Also by that most of the testing chemicals are stale and need to be replaced anyway.
I am asking because I just got in the recommended Taylor K-2006.
Figured I would open it and try a quick chlorine and ph test.
For the chlorine test itís something like 7 steps and I cant even get past the first one.
1. Use 1 drop- 0.2 ppm, use 25 ml sample. For 1 drop Ė 0.5 ppm use 10 ml sample.
Few minutes scanning thru the instruction book and cant see that it explains which sample I should use 25 ml or 10 ml.
Anyway needless to say this kit is not for me.
7 steps listed just to check chlorine and it does not even explain the first one good.
Terrible instruction manual. 50 pages. Tells you all about what chlorine is. But not how to test it.
Will just wait until I every have to spend the time with a kit like this.
If the basic kit does find and only need something every 4 years and then have to replace the testing chemicals I donít need. As long as donít start having more problems.
If the pool is clear I donít need to spend more time testing than I do on other pool maintenance.
May end up keeping it just to measure CYA, which seems easy enough and donít need to do often.
But would still like something else instead of the dilution method for chlorine with the basic kits.
