It is critical to test your pool water regularly (at least once a week) to be sure chemical levels are properly balanced to ensure safety and swimmer comfort. Test strips are a quick (30 second) way to test the pool for adequate sanitizer levels as well as pH and total alkalinity. Proper testing also ensures that calcium levels are maintained and that there are no metals present in the pool water. These tests can be completed by you or your pool professional.
