Swimming pool water should be tested at least once a week to ensure proper water balance and chlorine levels. A properly balanced pool is much less likely to develop problems, so establish a routine for testing your pool water! A good set of test strips will give you the most critical and accurate readings unlike a liquid dropper kit. Just dip a test strip into the pool, remove, hold it flat,(do not shake) and take your readings after about 15 seconds. Adjust your swimming pool water as necessary. Adding the correct amount of pool chemicals after the water testing results will keep your swimming pool water crystal clear.
