Step-by-step instructions . . .

If you want to customize readings and dosage values, you can make changes using the web portal. Log into, click Settings, then click Reading Values. If you'd like to delete an existing category, you can click the Trash Can icon and then confirm deletion, and it will disappear from your list. If you'd like to add a new reading, click the Add Reading button at the top of the screen.

On next screen, fill in all the details. Description is the label this reading will go by, such as Chlorine, etc. You can add a unit of measurement and a reading type if you like. When you have it all down, click Save and will show up on your list.

You can also edit a current reading category by clicking on it. Then you can change the description (label), UOM, and reading type. On the right, here is where you can change the values that you'll select from when entering readings. Using the box and the add button, you can add new values. Using the Trash Can icon, you can delete values that you no longer want. Click Save when you have made the changes you would like to see in the app.

Now we'll go to Dosage Values, where you'll find a similar system with a couple of key differences. The first thing you can do is Add Dosage by clicking the button at top. Again, choose a description, UOM, and dosage type. The difference is you can also include COST per unit and PRICE to customer per unit. You can also mark if you want that chemical included with what you're charging for weekly service. When have what you want, click Save.

Like with Readings, you can also delete unwanted dosages with Trash Can icons. You can also edit dosage values by clicking their name. Here we have example settings, and you can choose to change anything want, then click Save. Then be sure to sync your device so the changes reflect in Skimmer app. And then you'll be good to go!
