LaMotte Waterlink Spin Touch

This is the Lamotte WaterLink Spin Touch Mobile which can do 10 test factors in 60 seconds. It is a truly awesome water tester in every way. In this Podcast I talk to Rich DeMoss of LaMotte Company and we go into detail on the features and use of the Spin Touch.

The SKU for the Mobile unit is: Lamotte #3581 MOBILE WaterLink SPIN TOUCH Lab and the price has remained unchanged from 2017. The Spin Touch test kit great for so many applications. If you service Commercial Accounts this is a great way to keep your logs for the Health Department and Pool Manager. For Resorts, Hotels and Clubs this would be a perfect way to get spot on readings to assure that the public pool is safe. And of you are a Health Inspector there is no better water tester than this. Plus it comes with a 2 year warranty.

The Spin Touch Mobile also can be switched from Pool to Tap Water so if you are in water quality management or in plumbing, this kit would be great. If you own a retail pool store or a hardware store and offer water testing to your customers they make a retail store version with a counter mat, posters and door decal the #3580 Model.

The 202 Disks seen in this video are sold in a 50 pack for around $120. The 202 Disk does 10 test factors in 60 seconds:

Free Chlorine (DPD) 0-15 ppm
Total Chlorine (DPD) 0-15 ppm
Bromine (DPD) 0-33 ppm
pH 6.3-8.6
Calcium Hardness 0-800 ppm
Total Alkalinity 0-250 ppm
Cyanuric Acid 5-150 ppm
Copper 0-3.0 ppm
Iron 0-3.0 ppm
Salt 0-5000 ppm
Phosphate 0-200 ppb

Here are the 202 disks on eBay:

Imagine doing all of these test within 60 seconds. If you are doing pool start-ups the power of this tester is just awesome. It will give you all the vital test factors to insure a perfect pool start-up. If you service Commercial Pools think of the time you will save when using the Spin Touch Mobile. The price of the disks is offset by the time savings and by the accurate results that are logged by the software in the Spin Touch and can be sent to the customer or Health Official.

They also have a disk that tests just 3 test parameters which can also be reused 3 times. This disk does Total Chlorine or Bromine, Free Chlorine and pH Disk #4334-H. This would be a great disk for spot
checking a pool in between the 10 test factors which you could do monthly. It is really a very versatile tester that can be used in any number of applications.

You can also download the WaterLink Connect app from the Google Plat Store and Apple App store. This App is free and will allow you to connect the Spin Touch to your smart phone or device and from the App you can transfer the Test Logs and actually control the Spin Touch unit from your smart phone or device. You can take it a step further and Subscribe to the WaterLink DATAMATE Web which will allow you to store, send the log customer data. After you log the test results the Data Mate software will give you detailed recommendations to balance the water. To learn more:
