There is a variance with strips, and a variance with aquarite. But that is a pretty big difference. I would take sample to store and have them check, use the average of the three.

Normal variance displayed by the AquaRite can be as much as 400ppm. You might need to clean the cell if you haven't done so already.

Hi Tim,
I've had a salt chlorinator for 5-6 years now & I know the strips have never matched my aquarite. Last year (finally!!) one pool store near me became able to measure my salt level but I previously I had found a little digital measurer online. It a digital TDS (I think that stands for Total Dissolved Solids) which works great.
