Pool Water Testing Made Simple

Testing your pool water can feel like a chore when you’re not used to it but once you’ve got your system and chemicals set up, it should only take a few minutes. Your pool water should be tested at least once a week, and more often over the summer months when it’s in heavy usage. Making sure your pool water is chemically balanced means there’s no risk to the health of swimmers, the water stays beautiful and clear and the pool and equipment will need less maintenance.

Importance of Maintaining PH Balance in your Pool

As a pool owner, your pool cleaner, filtration system, chlorinator and added chemicals should work in harmony to maintain perfect, crystal-clear water at all times. Below, we list some of the key reasons why achieving this balance is so important.
