Keep your pool healthy by testing it regularly

It is recommended that pool water be tested fortnightly in the warmer months and monthly in winter.

When taking your sample, collect about 500ml of pool water. Take the sample from elbow depth away from the pool returns.

Bear in mind that test results can vary significantly between tests depending on weather conditions and bather load.

When taking samples after inclement weater wait until a couple of filter cycles have passed so as to be sure of an accurate test.

Also do not let your pool water sample sit in the car all day before taking it to the pool shop as the sample will give inaccurate readings.
