FAQs About Swimming Pool Water Testing
One of the many services we offer here at Cayman Pool & Spa is pool water testing, which is a vital step in making sure your water remains clean and safe for swimming. Below, our team has put together the answers to a few of our most frequently asked questions on this subject to help you get a better idea of why swimming pool water testing matters and how to do it.
Why is swimming pool water testing important?
It’s important to test the chemical balance of your pool water regularly—ideally at least once every two weeks—to make sure the water stays clean and safe for swimming. If the chlorine levels drop too low, your pool water will soon turn green with algae, while if you let them rise too high, the water will irritate everyone’s skin and eyes whenever they go for a swim.
How do I test my pool water?
Performing your own pool water testing is actually a fairly simple and easy process. Pool supply companies—including ours—offer kits containing everything you need to run the test. Your kit will contain two vials to collect your samples of pool water, as well as testing chemicals to check chlorine and pH levels. Simply mix in drops of the appropriate test chemical into each well, according to the instructions, then compare the color of the water to the chart on the side of each vial to get your results.
What should I do if my pool water tests poorly?
If your swimming pool water testing session reveals your chlorine level is too high, you should add a chlorine neutralizer to your water to bring it back down—add the chemical slowly and check your water periodically as you go to make sure you don’t overdo it. Conversely, if your chlorine level is too low, simply add more, again checking frequently to make sure to stay within safe limits.
