Testing your pool water is the only surefire way to maintain a clean and healthy body of water. As a pool owner, this essential responsibility however is often overlooked. Many think testing your pool water is a difficult task that requires a trip to the local pool store, but the truth is you can easily test the water yourself quickly using a swimming pool test kit.
Testing your pool water is essential because unbalanced pool chemistry will wreak havoc on your swimming pool and cause harm to your swimmers. Keeping your water chemistry balanced using a pool chemical test kit is what prevents your hair from turning green, your skin irritating, slimy algae from growing on the side, and calcium buildup from ruining your equipment.
There are many different types of pools that each rely on pool test kits to ensure chemical levels are balanced. For a chlorine based pool, if the levels are too low, algae will take over and other bacteria will fester. Conversely, if chlorine levels are too high, the result can be eye and skin irritation for swimmers. Thus, a pool chlorine test kit is the answer to find equal footing.
