Digital testing is a must for the pool service pro. There are several digital testing methods including photometers and the one like the Tracer PockeTester which uses an electronic probe. Electronic probes are popular among floating in-pool testers and they may be the right method for your testing also.
Electronic Probe testing is accurate and can test for a variety of factors that a photometer and reagent test kit cannot test for like Salinity, Conductivity, and TDS. Although you can get the pH and Chlorine reading from a photometer a probe tester has a factory accuracy that can't be beaten. For new pool start-ups, the pH range from a probe is something that you will find useful as it has a range from:
pH 0.00 to 14.00 pH
0.01 pH ±0.01 pH
It measures the Total Chlorine from 0 to 9.99 ppm with an accuracy of 10% and resolution of 0.01 ppm. I found it to be accurate with 2-3% in my testing so this is a very accurate digital tester when used correctly. You will need to do 3 steps to get a correct reading.
