1. Collect Water Sample
Dip the test cells into the pool water 18 inches below the surface of the water (approximately deep enough so the water reaches your elbow).
2. Dispense Solution in Drops
Hold the appropriate indicator solution bottle vertically and dispense the solution in drops as prescribed in the directions. Shake the cells three or four times to mix.
3. Compare with Color Standards
Hold the cells up to a neutral background in outdoor light. Match the color of the sample in the pH and sanitizer cells to their closest respective standard . Follow kit directions for determining Total Alkalinity, Calcium Hardness, and Cyanuric Acid (CYA) level.
