Canada's Digital & Electronic Pool Water Testers
The best way to make sure your pool water is clean, clear, and safe to swim in, is by checking the content of the water. An electronic pool tester checks the pH levels, calcium hardness, total alkalinity, cyanuric acid levels, salt levels for saltwater pools, and chlorine to determine whether the level is too high, too low, or perfectly balanced.
Electronic pool water testers are accurate and easy to use. Simply turn the device on and set it to the correct menu. Once the device is ready, submerge the metallic testing prongs into a sample of pool water. Just after a few seconds, the probes reveal readings of the results that are automatically displayed on the screen, allowing users to use this valuable information to evaluate the pH levels or chlorine balance of their pool water instantaneously. The electronic display clearly indicates the exact measurement, and typically within 1 or 2 percent. Therefore, digital testers are the best option for a single-factor measurement, like pH or chlorine level.
Regardless of the size or type of pool you are trying to maintain, it’s necessary to have an electronic pool chemistry tester to get the appropriate balance of chemicals. Balanced chemical levels kill bacteria and prevent algae from growing, ensuring the water is safe for swimming. To get the best electronic pool tester, consider the water type, and the various test elements, including pH, alkalinity, calcium hardness, and more.
Saltwater pools require a digital salt water pool tester to make sure the generated chlorine is at an appropriate level. For our salt water pool owners out there, we recommend using the Hayward GLX-SALTMETER Salt Tester. This is a perfect option to analyze the water for the proper amount of salt as well as check the ph levels, total alkalinity, and chlorine levels.
Chlorine pools circulate chlorine using a pump and filtration system to prevent algae and bacteria from spreading in your pool water. These pools will need a digital pool chlorine tester such as the Trutest Spa Digital Test Strip Reader to test for pH and chlorine levels. Whether you have a saltwater, chlorine, or bromine type of pool, your digital tester should be utilized 2 to 3 times a week on average, to check the pH balance of your pool water. Depending on the frequency of use, this estimate can vary.
