Scuba+ next generation electronic pool testers

Tuesday, 11 January, 2011

For peace of mind, anyone owning a pool should carry out regular checks on the most important characteristics of the water in the pool (the so-called hygiene parameters). So the quality of the water can be checked and the water treatment chemicals can be dosed to meet the requirements.

The Scuba is an immersible test device which uses a similar technology as is used in public swimming pools. A sample of the water is tested using the photometric principle and the result is shown in the digital display. Compared to visual pooltester systems this eliminates the risk of wrong colour readings. The unit has a modern housing designed to meet ergonomic requirements and is, of course, fully watertight.

The Scuba is supplied complete with specially formulated, quick dissolving reagent tablets (identified by their white foil packaging). It also has a handy strap so that it can be hung safely in a storage area.

Insert the 9V battery in the unit and switch on at the "on/off" switch. Then set the "mode" button to the test required - for example, "Cl" for chlorine.

Now open the cover on the left hand side of the unit and swing the Scuba through the water until the measurement chamber is full of water. Close the cover and press the "zero/test" button to set zero.

Open the cover again and drop the appropriate quick-dissolving reagent tablet into the water, close the cover and shake the Scuba to ensure even distribution of the reagent in the water sample.

A quick press on the "zero/test" button will display the digital reading in milligrams per litre (mg/litre) or as a pH value.

Each Scuba is supplied with a pack of reagent tablets, multi-language operating instructions, a handy carrying strap and a 9V battery in a blister pack. The unit is immediately ready to use.
