  1. Will one of those pool ph tester kit's work for testing the ph. If not whats my next option.
  2. I dont see why it wouldn't work. :)
  3. Im sure I could stop at my local nursery and they should sell chemicals to raise/lower my ph levels as well as meter as well cause i got one right down my street.

  4. If you buy a digital pH meter....those require calibrating everytime you use it and also solution to store the meter....I love the eye dropper tests b/c its just so simple and straightforward..:)
  5. Some digital Ph testers require calibration about once a week to every couple of weeks, mine they reccomend once a month. As for storage solution I just use tap water that sat out for a day or so. Link below is what I got.

  6. I agree its not maybe as accurate but its close enough for me. I have a digital one but hardly use it.

  7. Yeah...I went from a Hanna pH meter to the simple 4$ eye dropper test kit...:)
  8. I found using the dropper test kit a pain in the butt when testing water run off do to the discoloration of the water run off. I got that one for when the day comes and I have the money to switch over to hydro I will already have a PH tester that will work for it, especialy for EC readings.
