Measure Up

LaMotte Company announced the new ColorQ PRO 7-PLUS (Code# 2064) handheld pool and spa professional photometer. The photometer directly measures the seven primary pool tests of Free Chlorine (DPD), Total Chlorine (DPD), Bromine (DPD), pH, Alkalinity, Calcium Hardness and Cyanuric Acid directly on a digital display. The ColorQ eliminates the need to visually determine slight color variations or use look-up tables, thus taking the guesswork out of poolside water analysis. The ColorQ PRO 7-Plus, Pool Manager Handbook, Saturation Index Calculator and reagents are packaged in a rugged carrying case for on-site testing.
