pH strips and salinometer

Submitted by Daniel on 01/05/2003. ( )

I received the EZ-100 tanning kit and the instructions say to use a salinometer and be able to test the pH...are these two items a necessity? I do not have either one and thought everything I needed would be in the kit.

If I have to have them, can either item be bought at a hardware store (Home Depot, Sears Hardware, etc.?)

......if these can be purchased at your local retailers. I personally do not use a salinometer but would have to call ph strips a MUST. To many factors affect ph and can make all the difference in your tan. Ph strips can be purchased at WASCO and most other taxidermy suppliers for around $4. Follow directions carefully on your kit and enjoy your tan. Good luck.

The PH test kit can be bought at a pool/hot tub supply store, and the salinometer can be bought at a pet store that deals in salt water fish. Neither is very expensive. Carl
