HM Digital TDS-EZ Water Quality TDS Tester, 0-9990 ppm Measurement Range, 1 ppm Resolution, 3% Readout Accuracy

Model: TDS-EZ   |    Mpn: TDS-EZ   |    Ean: 0886566120518   |    PartNumber: TDS-EZ   |   Asin: B002C0A7ZY

Product Description: A TDS meter (aka ppm pen, nutrient tester, tds stick) is an inexpensive and convenient digital tool to instantly check your overall water quality. TDS = Total Dissolved Solids, which is any salt, metal or mineral in the water. With the push of a button, the TDS-EZ can tell you your overall water purity level, which will be displayed on the screen in ppm (parts per million). The lower the TDS level, the purer the water, with 0 ppm being pure H2O. The TDS-EZ is great for checking your tap water quality, or knowing when to change a filter. (The meter does not test for biological contaminants.) The TDS-EZ is a great tool for drinking water, water filtration and purification, hydroponics (test your nutrients), aquariums, RO/DI systems, pools and spas, and more.

Features

  • Economy model that is ideal for end-users. Highly efficient and accurate due to its advanced microprocessor technology.
  • Hold Function: saves measurements for convenient reading and recording and battery life is approx. 1000 hours of usage and power source is 2 x 1.5V button cell batteries (included) (LR44 or equivalent)
  • Auto-off function: the meter shuts off automatically after 10 minutes of non-use to conserve batteries. Display: large and easy-to-read LCD screen.
  • Measurement Range: 0-9990 ppm. From 0-999 ppm, the resolution is in increments of 1ppm. From 1000 to 9990 ppm, the resolution is in increments of 10ppm, indicated by a blinking 'x10' image. Fun, translucent blue housing that's very strong and durable.
  • TDS-EZ meters are calibrated with a 342 ppm NaCl solution. Meters can be recalibrated with a mini-screwdriver. Includes a TDS chart sticker on the back of the meter that explains TDS values.

Dolphin Nautilus CC Automatic Robotic Pool Cleaner with Large Capacity Top Load Filter Basket Ideal for Swimming Pools up to 33 Feet

Model: 99996113-US   |    Mpn: 99996113-US   |    Ean: 0724131497149   |    PartNumber: 99996113-US   |   Asin: B01N78IVWJ

With its new design and advanced cleaning system, the Nautilus with CleverClean is the new standard in pool cleaning for pools up to 40 feet in length. This upgraded cleaner features CleverClean Technology, a software that systematically scans your pool to determine the most efficient path, regardless of the shape or surface of your pool, resulting in a clean pool every time. The weekly timer function allows the Nautilus with CleverClean to automatically run its programmed two-hour cycle at set intervals throughout the week. Equipped with active brushes, the brushes spin two times the speed of the robot removing stuck-on contaminants from the surface of your pool. The new body style on the Nautilus with CleverClean features a hinged top with quick access to the large filter basket making it easy to clean and ergonomically friendly. This cleaner also has a new fast water release system that quickly removes excess water when removing the cleaner from the pool, ensuring the Nautilus with CleverClean remains lightweight and easy to carry, even after running a full cleaning cycle. Another notable visual difference is the lack of a swivel on the cable on the Nautilus with CleverClean. This is because the Nautilus with CleverClean utilizes software controlled anti-tangling algorithms to prevent the cable from tangling over the course of the cycle. Since all Dolphin Robotics run independently from your pool s pump and filter system, the Nautilus with CleverClean uses a fraction of the energy when compared to other cleaning systems. With a 12 month warranty, the Nautilus with CleverClean has everything you need when it comes to a robotic pool cleaner.

Features

  • New!! 50% lighter, LG capacity top load filtration and enhanced features
  • The Dolphin Nautilus CC cleans the floor and walls
  • Clever Clean Technology that systematically scans your pool to determine most efficient path, regardless of shape or surface resulting in clean pool every time
  • Active brush for effective scrubbing and cleaning

Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus Automatic Robotic Pool Cleaner with Easy to Clean Top Load Filters Ideal for Swimming Pools up to 50 Feet

Model: 99996403-PC   |    Mpn: 99996403-PC   |    Ean: 0718117198717   |    PartNumber: 99996403-PC   |   Asin: B00Q8M0NWE

Packed with even more features and exceptional cleaning power, the Nautilus Plus with CleverClean is a must have for any pool up to 50 feet in length. This upgraded cleaner features CleverClean Technology, a software that systematically scans your pool to determine the most efficient path, regardless of the shape or surface of your pool, resulting in a clean pool every time. The weekly timer function allows the Nautilus Plus with CleverClean to automatically run its programmed two-hour cycle at set intervals throughout the week. The extra-large top access filter system is equipped with two full sets of filter cartridges. This means that both large and small debris will be filtered out from your water, resulting in a cleaner, clearer swimming pool. One of the most defining features of Dolphin robots is the presence of a patented swivel cable. This technology addresses one of the most prevalent problems with robotic cleaner technology by allowing the cable to spin and rotate a full 360 degrees with the robot s movement in the water, without the cable becoming kinked or tangled. Another important feature to note about Dolphin Robotics is the fact that it is completely independent of you pool s pump and filter, enabling you to clean your pool using a fraction of the energy than other types of cleaning systems. The Nautilus Plus with CleverClean is also backed with a 24 month warranty leaving you worry free.
