With Insta-LINK® HOME, spend more time swimming and less time maintaining!

Turn your Smartphone into a Test Strip Scanner

As a pool or spa owner you know that maintenance can be a lot of work. You need to test and balance the water, keep the filter and baskets clean, vacuum the leaves and debris, and that’s just regular maintenance.

This FREE Insta-LINK® HOME app will simplify water testing, allowing you to use the camera on your phone to scan test strips for accurate and reliable results!

• “Photo-scan” supported Insta-LINK® or Insta-TEST® strips using the camera on your smartphone*
• Manually enter test results for Free Chlorine, Bromine, Total Chlorine, pH, Alkalinity, Cyanuric Acid, Hardness, Copper, and Salt
• Indication if your test results are in or out of range

Plus, log into this app with your Insta-LINK® HOME account to access all of the great features of the Insta-LINK® HOME Service while on the go, pool side, or standing at the counter purchasing chemicals.

• Step-by-step treatment recommendations for balancing your pool or spa based on your test results and tailored to your pool or spa
• Store important site information such as pool volume, surface type, and treatment chemicals
• All water tests automatically stored for easy review
* Seamlessly syncs with your Insta-LINK® HOME account online
• Link to your local dealer for a more personalized experience

*Use of the photo-scanning feature requires a SmartScan™ Card, a specially colored plastic card that you place the test strip on before taking a picture.

Important Notice
• Always consult with your local pool professional when any significant changes occur with your pool or spa. Your linked dealer will be able to pull up your test history at his shop in order to help diagnose the problem(s) you may be having. This program is designed to improve basic maintenance but conditions such as cloudy water, colored water, corrosion or scale can occur if maintenance is ignored. So take a water sample to your dealer periodically to test other factors such as metals and other measurements better handled by a professional. WaterLink® dealers are well equipped to give you highly accurate, rapid analysis and treatments while you’re in the store.

Needs bug fix


If you follow directions, it works mostly. Does not work with indoor lighting.
Set up an account but every time I login I will get a blank screen with no recourse. Need to uninstall the app and reinstall to be able to use it again. This has been the case since I tried using this since last year, now on iOS 11.2.5

Just a bad front end to a bad web page...


Everything done through this app could easily be done locally, without any kind of network connection required. Sadly, that’s not the way this app works.

Even all the user interface elements come from the back end web page.

Just give me the back end web page on a mobile browser, if you’re going to do that.

Should be 0 stars!


This app is just a fail all around. The concept is great, but it doesn’t work! The fact that it rarely does work gives me zero confidence that it’s anywhere near accurate when it on a rare occasion actually gives results and not some error message! Just don’t do it, it’s a waste of your money to buy the strips!
