How to use test strips in hot tub water.

Weather you own a hot tub, spa or jacuzzi you will need test strips. These strips measure various elements in your water. For instance chlorine/bromine being your sanitiser. As well as ph, TA, and total hardness levels. The strips will usually come in a small container with 50 strips enclosed.

Simple steps to test your water.

  1. Take a fresh test strip and place into the water.
  2. Swirl the strip around in the water approx 3 times.
  3. Take the strip out of the water but do not shake it.
  4. Read your test strip against the table on the side of the container.

Subject to the results you will then adjust the levels to achieve the correct levels. For example if your pH is high a pH Minus will be required. Likewise if the pH is low then pH Plus is the answer.
