Test strips, the easiest method for pool and spa water testing, are fast and simple to use because they eliminate the need to measure samples and count drops.
Typically, you simply dip a strip in the water for one second and then remove it. You then compare the color on the strip to the color chart on the label.
Industry and water quality experts report that test strips are comparable in accuracy to liquid kits. In fact, many believe they actually deliver greater accuracy than liquid kits because they require less technique.
