The 0.1 kg Palintest Pooltester is designed for measuring the pH, chlorine, bromine, cyanuric acid, alkalinity, and sometimes oxygen of pools or hot tubs. However, this tester is also used for drinking water quality measuring in low resource settings. The color-coded kit contains two small water storage chambers for testing. Dissolving reagent tablets are poured into the water-filled chambers to make a chemical reaction and develop a coloring. The developed color is then compared with the adjacent color-coded measuring kit for the result. Moreover, the kit is also available in different modules such as:
- Active Oxygen/pH Pooltester SP626
- Chlorine (0–5 mg/L)/pH/Alkalinity Pooltester SP612
- Chlorine (0–3 mg/L)/pH/Alkalinity Pooltester SP614
- Bromine/pH/Alk Pooltester SP616
- Cyanuric Acid Pooltester SP620
