Product Details

The perfect Starter kit for Pool Water testing, including salt water pools. This full featured kit includes everything needed to test Pool Water quickly and reliably.

The latest technology in digital water testing allows customers to transfer their water testing results straight to a smart device, like an iPhone®, iPad®, and iPod Touch®, Android® using a personalised app. From there they can be stored, emailed and categorised by location or customers.

Ideal for customers, who test the water in their pool/ swimming pool/ hot tub regularly and want to keep the results in a chart

--> The iDip® photometer will test your water and download the results for you, results include date, time and location - saving repetitive data entries

The new and exciting eXact iDip® photometer harnesses the power of smart devices and the simplicity of design to efficiently handle regular and complex water testing. The smart phone app is designed to work seamlessly with the waterproofed handheld unit with parameter information, data storage and GPS tracking included. Results are quickly available and exact. The eXact iDip® photometer is manufactured using the highest quality standards, capable of running over 35 water quality tests, uses simple AAA batteries.

To carry a test, you need:

  • To download & install each test from the app-store from £4.95 each (prices do vary depending on exchange rates). This is a one-off cost, once a test has been downloaded onto your smart device from the app-store it can be used indefinitely. The photometer comes with 4 tests pre-installed including pH, DPD-1 Free Chlorine, DPD-3 Combined Chlorine and Total Alkalinity.
  • To purchase the reagent/test strips for that test, for details please see table below.

New tests are constantly developed - making this a testing device which can grow with your needs and requirements. It also makes it very efficient, as the user only pays for what he actually uses.
