Why Test Your Pool Water?

Regular pool water testing is essential for several reasons:

  1. Safety: Pool water that is not properly maintained can harbor harmful bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Testing ensures that the water is safe for swimmers, reducing the risk of infections and waterborne illnesses.
  2. Water Balance: Proper water balance is crucial for the effectiveness of sanitizers and other pool chemicals. Testing helps you maintain the right pH, alkalinity, and calcium hardness levels, preventing equipment damage and maintaining swimmer comfort.
  3. Water Clarity: Testing ensures that your pool water is clear and free of contaminants, ensuring a visually appealing and inviting swimming environment.

Our Pool Water Testing Process

When you choose our pool water testing service, you can expect a thorough and efficient process that delivers accurate results. Here’s how it works:

  1. Sample Collection: Collect a water sample from your pool, at least 20 ounces. Bring it to our Hopkins or Rogers showroom to be tested. You want to ensure that the sample represents the overall water quality accurately.
  2. Comprehensive Analysis: The collected sample is analyzed in our showroom using our cutting-edge testing equipment. We test for various parameters, including pH levels, total alkalinity, chlorine/bromine levels, calcium hardness, cyanuric acid, and more.
  3. Detailed Report: Once the analysis is complete, we print out your results. Our team will explain the findings and offer recommendations for any necessary adjustments or treatments.

Our Recommendations

Based on the test results, our experienced team will provide you with personalized recommendations to maintain optimal water quality. These may include:

  1. Adjustments: If the test reveals imbalances in pH, alkalinity, or sanitizer levels, we will recommend the appropriate adjustments to restore the water balance.
  2. Treatment Options: In case of any issues with water clarity, our retail store has everything you will need.  We will suggest the most effective treatments to resolve the problem, such as filtration system improvements, shock treatments, or algae control measures.
