Testing hot tub water regularly is important in order to protect everyone who uses the spa and provide a safe and clean bathing experience.
The most popular way to test hot tub water quality is with test strips. There are different types of test strips on the market. Some test just for bromine while others combine bromine, chlorine and pH levels as well as alkalinity readings. The paper test strip is a quick way of getting an overview of hot tub water quality. To use them, simply dip them into the water (and get your hands wet as explained in the video).
