How to test for pH levels

pH is one of the critical elements that your pool maintenance program needs to get right. Too far towards either the acidic or basic ends of the pH spectrum could cause both swimmer discomfort and damage to the pool. The instructions on the sides of our kits are simplified reminders of the procedure for advanced users (see […]

How to test for Calcium Hardness (CH)

Water that has low Calcium Hardness (CH) tends to attack most pool surfaces (except vinyl pools). However, too much calcium leads to excessive scaling which can clog pipes and render salt-water generators inoperable. Therefore maintaining a balance of calcium is critically important to the long term maintenance of your pool. The instructions on the sides of […]

How to test for Total Alkalinity (TA)

Measuring the level of Total Alkalinity (TA) in your pool gives you a way to understand how susceptible your pool is to wild changes in pH. Low levels of TA will mean that the pH in your pool will be unstable. However, high levels of TA will also make it hard to maintain optimum pH, […]
