    hydrotools ph tester.......

    Order this the other day its a 6 way test I believe. All I wanted was the bigger sample bottle for testing ph but the readings I get with the Taylor's compared to the hydrotools is a bit different which u also test it different also. Which would be more accurate? U can also do the acid test with the hdrytolls kit.

    I searched for Hydrotools test kits and didn't find a 6-way kit that they made.

    Taylor is about as accurate as you can get. I'd trust them before any of the others.

    Re: hydrotools ph tester.......

    I have a Poolmaster kit and while I like the larger pH measurement cylinder the chemistry sucks. I use my Taylor pH indicator in the Poolmaster kit at times and when I do the results agree with the Taylor block - when I use the Poolmaster kit I get the tell tale chlorphenol purple even at FC of 5-8ppm after using the chlorine neutralizer...

    My point is that the Taylor chemistry is very accurate and known to be. I don't know about others.
