FAQs About Swimming Pool Testing
When it comes to pool care, frequent swimming pool testing is essential to keep the water clear and healthy. However, many people don’t know very much about pool testing, especially if they are new to having a swimming pool. Below, you will find the answers to some of our frequently asked questions about swimming pool testing. If you have any follow-up questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us today.
How often should I do swimming pool testing?
Generally, you should test your pool water’s pH and chlorine levels about 2 to 3 times a week for the best results. You should also be sure to test your pool when you are opening or closing it, after a storm, or whenever the water starts to look murky.
What kind of test kit should I use?
There is no single answer to this question. You have a choice between 3 main options: liquid pool test kits, pool test strips, and digital pool testers. The liquid test kits involve collecting a sample of water and applying special drops to test it. Pool test strips are not as accurate as liquid test kits, but they are still reliable and more affordable. Digital pool testers are the most expensive, but they give you an accurate reading in seconds.
Do I need to test my saltwater pool?
Yes, just like any other pool, saltwater pools need to be tested regularly. It’s important not just to test the chlorine, pH, alkalinity, cyanuric acid, and calcium levels, but also to test the salinity.
