    Getting water tested at the pool store

    What should I use to take my water to the pool store for testing?
    18K Gallon In Ground Gunite Pool, Quartz/Plaster Finish, 8' Spa with Spillover, 1 Grotto/Waterfall, Hayward/Goldline PS8 controller, 1.5 HP Two Speed Pump, 1HP Booster Pump for Grotto/Waterfall, Cartridge Filter,400K BTU Nat Gas Heater, Ozonator,3 Multi-Color LED Lights (Spa, Grotto, Pool).

    Ozonator is not functioing, evaluating my options, either fix it or get a new one or drop it completely.

    Most stores will give you a bottle, makes it easy to use your test kit at home.

    You can use a standard 16 oz spring water bottle if you don't have a pool store bottle. Rinse it out with pool water a couple of times, fill it completely full with pool water from 12 - 18 inches down, and make sure the cap is on tightly.
