Pool water testing

The key to a safe, healthy pool with balanced water starts with regular water testing. The results of the tests enable us to ascertain any problems or potential problems in the pool water. Using the values from the water tests, we can determine what chemicals and the quantities necessary to ensure ideal water balance.

Usually these tests are confined to pH and total chlorine. Unfortunately there are critical water tests which need to be done intermittently and which are as important as these two tests.

The tests which have to be done are as follows: total alkalinity, calcium hardness (or total hardness), stabiliser (conditioner), and total dissolved solids (TDS). Failure to measure these values inevitably results in one pool problem or another.

More on these pool water tests soon.

Happy swimming.
