Perfect to balance H2O2 in hot tub.

— Indigo:

Good to know. Some of the hot tub vendors who have contacted us over the years recommend the 400ppm hydrogen peroxide strips. Both are effective but outdoor hot tubs may be more susceptible to windblown algae as well as H2O2 breakdown due to sunlight.

Easy online ordering. Was ready for pick up in no time. Have always used these test strips from Indigo for testing my hot tub. They work great and are reasonably priced.

Product works good, price seems reasonable. However, they didn't do what they said they would do for shipping. The site said orders before 11am shipped same day. My order was after 11am but, i felt it should be shipped next day which did not happen. It was handled as an order that came in after 11am the next day & then there was one more extra day delay for 'power outage'...disappointing!

— Indigo: Sorry about that, have rewritten the guarantee. At least the product worked well!

Very fast shipping, good order accuracy. The test strips are a cost effective way to accurately manage residual H2O2 levels.

Great service; price and product. Canada Post dropped the ball. Paid extra for express post and package sat in Canada Post for 3 days then delivered on day 4.

— Indigo:

Thanks for the feedback. Many of our Canadian customers have had similar problems. This prompted us to write: Canada Post is in the way of small business competing against Amazon.
