What is the Swimming Pool Water Test?
A swimming pool water test, also known as pool water testing or pool water analysis, is a procedure used to measure and assess various chemical parameters and qualities of the water in a swimming pool. This process helps pool owners and operators ensure that the pool water is safe, clean, and properly balanced for swimming. Testing follows the pool safety guidelines and regulations that are made to keep the public safe.
Why choose Southern Scientific?
With our professional lab-certified testing, you can be sure that the water in your pool is safe for swimming. Our tests measure important chemical levels like chlorine, pH, and total alkalinity and help maintain the proper balance of these chemicals to ensure a safe and healthy swimming environment.
In addition, our lab also offers bacteria testing for your swimming pool. Nasty bacteria such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Coliforms and Enterococci can grow in swimming pool water and, if not adequately controlled, can pose a health risk to swimmers. By regularly testing for bacteria in your pool, you can ensure that your patrons are swimming in safe, clean water.
How Do You Test Your Swimming Pool Water?
Testing your swimming pool water with a laboratory involves collecting a water sample and then sending it to a laboratory for analysis. The laboratory will use specialised equipment and techniques to test the water sample for various chemicals and substances.
The water sample can be collected by you or a sampling technician using a special water sample bottle, which can be sent to the laboratory safely. From there, the laboratory will test your sample.
Laboratory testing is usually more accurate and precise than test kits and can also detect other potential contaminants in the water. Therefore, it is beneficial if the pool or spa is used for commercial purposes or if specific regulations need to be met.
Laboratory testing can also be done as a confirmation test in case of a high reading by the test kit or an event such as water discolouration.
If you are unsure about how often or what to test for in your pool or spa, it is recommended to consult with one of our pool water testing consultants, who can help you to make a proper plan for your pool’s water testing regimen.
