The main reason why pool stores use colorimeters (or, UGG! strip readers!) is because it speeds up testing. I can do a whole battery of tests (FC, TC, pH, TA, CH, CYA, copper, and iron) in under 5 minutes including the printout. I do back up certain tests with Taylor titrations when warrented. If I depended on wet testing for every test it would talk substantially longer and the info would have to be manually entered into the computer for the printout. When I have people lined up 5 deep for water testing it's just not feasble. At home I use a with a from Apollo pools! (and I own several different testkits from various comanies and a few digital meters that are worthless, IMHO!)

Now that you can test your pH levels you can determine whether it needs to be adjusted. You want to be certain all your nutrients are added in as they themselves can alter the pH of the solution. pH adjustment should be your last step in making a nutrient solution. If you need to lower the pH of you water the best ingredient to use is phosphoric acid, the plants can just absorb it as another form of phosphorus. To raise the pH of a nutrient solution the best ingredient is potassium hydroxide that the plants can just take up as potassium.
