  • 6. 6 2 1 2 eXact® R051914 AL1 PH2 CL3 CL3 PO4 CA5 CH6 CY7 CY7 CU8 2 +2 12 12 12 1 1 1 1 1 1 Expected Meter 3 eXact® Strip Micro 10 has been designed to offer the user a more “Green” and cost-effective alternative to testing. Instead of using a 10ml water sample, eXact® Strip Micro 10 uses a 4ml water sample, which uses up to 60% less chemical per test. The accuracy of the meter is maintained by designing the photo cell with a 20mm pathlength. Dimensions: Instrument: 5 (W) x 3.5 (D) x 16.5 (H) cm; (2 x 1.4 x 6.375 in)
  • 7. 7
  • 8. eXact® Strip Micro AL - Part #486641 8
  • 9. 9 • For water temperatures above 35°C (hot tubs), remove and discard the strip when the timer displays “10”, countdown continues • Always fill the CELL to capacity (4mL)
  • 10. Micro 10 Video – Total Alkalinity 10
  • 11. eXact® Strip Micro pH - Part #486639 11
  • 12. 12 • Always fill the CELL to capacity (4mL) • Requires minimum of 20ppm Total Alkalinity
  • 13. Micro 10 Video - pH 13
  • 14. eXact® Strip Micro CL (DPD-1) Part #486637 14
  • 15. 15 • This result is NOT stored in CL3 unless Combined Chlorine steps 8,9,10 are completed • If “LO” is displayed, Chlorine is below detection limit • To run Free Chlorine only press MENU after completing step 7 (this result will not be stored in memory) • DO NOT discard the sample from the Free Chlorine test if Combined or Total Chlorine result is desired • DPD-1 will react with other oxidizers including peroxide and ozone • Test immediately after filling the CELL • When running a DPD-1 Free Chlorine test AFTER a Total Chlorine or Combined Chlorine DPD-3 or DPD-4 test, rinsing is very important to remove residual KI, which may interfere • If 0.00 is displayed you are about to run a Free Chlorine test; if 0 is displayed you are about to run the Combined Chlorine test portion
  • 16. Micro 10 Video – Free Chlorine 16
  • 17. eXact® Strip Micro CL (DPD-3) Part #486638 17
  • 18. 18 • DO NOT discard the sample from the Free Chlorine test if Combined or Total Chlorine result is desired • This result and the previous Free Chlorine result will be stored after step 10 is completed • If “LO” is displayed, Chlorine is below detection limit • After test is complete it is very important to rinse thoroughly to remove residual KI • If 0.00 is displayed you are about to run a Free Chlorine test; if 0 is displayed you are about to run the Combined Chlorine test portion • If you press READ again, the meter will do a 20 second countdown and will display the Total Chlorine result (this value will not be stored in memory); immediately press MENU to move on to the next test
  • 19. Micro 10 Video – Combined Chlorine 19
  • 20. eXact® Strip Micro PO4 - Part #486814 20
  • 21. 21 • Lint or debris from test pad may detach, but will not affect performance; test was designed with this in mind • Clean CELL with 0.1N HCl, Distilled Vinegar (5%), or Muriatic Acid (diluted 1:20 with H2O)before filling the meter with the sample to be rinsed and tested • If running multiple tests in a row, using the same water sample, the CELL does not have to be rinsed or cleaned with acid between each test. It is recommended that the CELL be rinsed three times with the sample water. • After the 20 second countdown, the display will immediately start counting up from 1 to 120 (this extra time allows the reaction to complete) • The calibration of the meter is based on a water temperature between 15°C (59°F) and 31°C (88°F). If temperature is below 15°C (59°F), your final Phosphate value may read low. • This test can also be used for salt water testing.
  • 22. Micro 10 Video – Phosphate 22
  • 23. eXact® Strip Micro CA - Part #486629 23
  • 24. 24 • The Calcium test uses the Oxalic acid precipitation method. This test is most accurate when the pool or spa water sample is within APSP recommended ranges for pH (7.2-7.8) and alkalinity (80-130ppm). For best results, confirm that the pH and total alkalinity are in these ranges before running this test. • To obtain optimal accuracy when testing in direct sunlight, use the Mixing Cap/Cell Cover when zeroing and reading the sample • It is recommended to use the Cell Cleaning Brush with water to clean the CELL after each test to remove reagents which coat the CELL wall
  • 25. Micro 10 Video – Calcium Hardness 25
  • 26. eXact® Strip Micro CU - Part #486632 26
  • 27. 27 • After the 20 second countdown, the display will immediately start counting up from 1 to 20 (this extra time allows the reaction to complete)
  • 28. Micro 10 Video – Copper 28
  • 29. eXact® Strip Micro CH - Part #481657-II 29
  • 30. 30 • This test requires a 1:20 (1 to 20) dilution of the salt system sample with salt free water • For best accuracy, strictly following Step 2 of the dilution method is critical • Use this diluted sample as your water sample for the following steps 20:1 Dilution Method for Salt Test
  • 31. Micro 10 Video – 20:1 Dilution Method 31
  • 32. 32 • This test requires a 1:20 (1 to 20) dilution of the salt system sample with salt free water • To obtain optimal accuracy when testing in direct sunlight, use the Mixing Cap/Cell Cover when zeroing and reading the sample • It is recommended to use the Cell Cleaning Brush with water to clean the CELL after each test to remove reagents which coat the CELL wall • The display only gives you three digits. A “0” should be added to the end of the reading. This is equivalent to multiplying by 10. As an example “213” equals 2,130 ppm as Sodium Chloride (NaCl)
  • 33. Micro 10 Video – Chloride (Salt) 33
  • 34. eXact® Reagent Micro CY-II Part #481652-II 34
  • 35. 35 • After the 20 second countdown, the display will immediately start counting up from 1 to 60 (this extra time allows the reaction to complete) • Make sure that the bottle is straight, not tilted when applying the drops • Shake the bottle vigorously, to mix the suspension in the bottle, before adding the drops to the meter • To obtain optimal accuracy when testing in direct sunlight, use the Mixing Cap/Cell Cover when zeroing and reading the sample • It is recommended to use the Cell Cleaning Brush with water to clean the CELL after each test to remove reagents which coat the CELL wall
  • 36. Micro 10 Video – Cyanuric Acid 36
  • 37. eXact® Strip Micro HP - Part #486648 37
  • 38. 38 • The Hydrogen Peroxide test is performed in the CY7 Menu using the Hydrogen Peroxide eXact Strip with the lookup table • After the 20 second countdown, the display will immediately start counting up from 1 to 60 (this extra time allows the reaction to complete) • RESULT DISPLAYED IS NOT THE PEROXIDE VALUE • You must use the table to obtain your result (e.g. a CY7 menu result of 47 equals 90ppm Hydrogen Peroxide) • Chlorine, Bromine, and other oxidizers will interfere with the peroxide test
