Can I compare the TruTest results to other test methods?
The accuracy of the unit should only be compared to visual test methods. This is
because the unit is capable of reporting numerical results between colorblocks
and therefore the unit can be considered to be more accurate than a visual
colorimetric evaluation (involving both human interpretation and interpolation).
Digital readout in place of color interpretation is TruTest's main benefit
resonating with many pool/spa owners.
Why is the pH or Total Alkalinity reading higher than expected?
This difference is likely due to technique. To reduce this variation, be sure to
press the START button on your Aquachek TruTest Digital Test Strip Reader at the
same time you dip the AquaChek TruTest Test Strip into your pool or spa. We have
new and improved directions available on our website that show the proper timing
of actions to ensure you are getting the most accurate results possible from
your AquaChek TruTest Digital Test Strip Reader. Also, please be aware that test
results can vary from method to method depending on the known levels of accuracy
- precision and interference for each kind of test method.
How long will the unit last?
The unit has been developed for the consumer's pool environment. With good cleaning and storage habits, the meter should last longer than 3 years.
Why does the unit sometimes not appear to stay ON?
The On button if depressed quickly on and off can cause conflicts with the
software, appearing to not stay on (or off). Simply waiting a minute or so
before pressing the ON button should help clear the cycle.
How should I be cleaning my TruTest?
A simple, non-abrasive wiping of the test strip window and all other surfaces
with clean, fresh water should clear any residual chemicals remaining from pool
What will happen if the meter falls into the pool/spa?
The meter was designed to withstand this kind of accidental submersion and
should float upon entry into the water. Simply remove the meter, take out the
batteries from the battery compartment, dry the battery compartment thoroughly
and replace with dry batteries. The meter should return to full performance.
Should I place or slide the test strip onto the test strip window?
It is very important that you do not slide the test strip on the window. This
action will result in inaccurate readings. A simple method is to place the first
pad nearest the top of the strip onto the window first, then lower the rest of
the strip down onto the window. This will ensure that the strip is all the way
in and down onto the window.
Test Strip Use
The AquaChek TruTest Test Strips are calibrated to work only with the AquaChek
TruTest Test Strip reader. Each strip may only be used once. Do not re-dip the
strip. Only dip the strip in calm areas of your pool or spa. Ensure you have a
fresh supply-keep cap on tight between uses and store at room temperature
