WATER TESTING


A Testing Revolution


egular and accurate testing of the water in a pool or hot tub is vital to ensure it is clean, healthy and balanced for the comfort and safety of bathers. Whilst tried and tested methods are simple to use and still very much in demand, the latest technology incorporating state-of-the-art software has given owners and operators more choices and made testing faster, simpler and more accurate with the results and recommendations processed using wireless technology. With so many great products now on the market that take any of the guesswork out of results, there’s now no excuse for water not to be regularly and accurately tested.

LINKING UP WITH THE LOVIBOND® PM 630


The new PM 630 from The Tintometer® Group introduces data management and Bluetooth®
