HCT Pool and Spa 5 in 1 Test Strips are a simple and convenient way to quickly and accurately test the water quality of your pool or spa. These strips are designed to provide results for five key parameters that are important for maintaining proper water balance, ensuring a safe and enjoyable swimming experience. Each bottle contains 100 strips.
The 5 parameters are as follows:
- Total Hardness refers to the amount of dissolved minerals in the water, primarily calcium and magnesium. High levels of total hardness can lead to scaling and cloudy water, while low levels can cause corrosion and damage to pool and spa surfaces and equipment.
- Free chlorine is the amount of chlorine that is available to actively sanitize and disinfect the water. Maintaining proper levels of free chlorine is critical for preventing the growth of harmful bacteria and other contaminants in the water.
- Cyanuric Acid is a stabilizer that helps to prevent the breakdown of chlorine in sunlight. High levels of cyanuric acid can interfere with the effectiveness of chlorine, while low levels can leave the pool or spa vulnerable to rapid chlorine loss.
- Total alkalinity is a measure of the water’s ability to resist changes in pH. Proper total alkalinity levels can help to prevent pH swings and ensure that the water remains comfortable for swimmers.
- pH is a measure of the water’s acidity or alkalinity. Maintaining proper pH levels is important for both the comfort of swimmers and the effectiveness of chlorine and other sanitizers.
