Video: How to Properly Test Pool Water


Maintaining proper water chemistry in your swimming pool is essential. Improper chemistry can negatively affect pools and swimmers, and unchecked water over time can lead to serious damage to your pool and equipment. But checking your water chemistry is easy to do! Make sure you have test strips with several different measurements–you’ll need to keep an eye on more than just the pH. We recommend AquaCheck 7-Way Test Strips–they give quick, easy-to-read, and accurate readings for Total Bromine, Total Chlorine, Free Chlorine, Total Alkalinity, pH, Total Hardness and Cyanuric Acid.
