Spa eXact® EZ Photometer (#486202) Easy & Accurate Hot Tub Water Testing!

If you have a spa or a hot tub and you are looking for a great water tester that is accurate and affordable, the Spa eXact EZ would be a perfect tester for you. Test strips are good, but they cannot give you spot-on readings like a photometer test kit. And balancing your spa water is a critical thing since the water quality impacts the bathing experience more in such a small body of water.

For example, if the pH is below 7.0 a test strip won’t be able to tell you how low it is. If the pH is actually at 6.5 you will start to get itchy skin and burning eyes as the spa water pH falls below your body’s pH. The Spa eXact EZ will tell you exactly what the pH is in the pool and eliminate the guesswork involved with test strips. It also is specially calibrated for the hot water of a spa or hot tub.
