Software Setup Instructions

Step 1: Load the software onto the computer (PC) in your water-testing station.

You must be at the computer where the taylorwise Water Analysis Software will be installed and have Internet access. Begin by clicking the Download Software button at the top of the screen. Alternatively, you can request a CD to install this program by calling 800-TEST KIT (837-8548).

Step 2: Customize the software for your use.

The Water Analysis Report contains three fields that must be customized by you: Store Settings, Range Settings, and Product Selections. Click here to see the example.

Begin by reviewing the instructions for customizing the taylorwise software to the unique requirements of your business. These are detailed in the Quick-Start Guide. To view the Quick-Start Guide PDF, click on the file name below. You will need to have Adobe® Acrobat or Acrobat Reader software installed on your computer (to download the most recent version of Acrobat Reader, visit www.adobe.com). If you cannot open the PDF simply by clicking on it, download it to your computer as explained in the next paragraph and then open it manually.

To save the material to your computer, right click on the file name and select “Save Target As” to download the material. (Netscape users select “Save As.”) Downloading this information may take several minutes depending on the speed of your Internet connection.

We recommend having a printout of the Quick-Start Guide in hand while performing the customization. 

Next, walk through the customization process with our instructor:
