Keep Your Home Pool Safe with Water Testing
If you’re an Australian pool owner, are you vigilant with your water testing? You really should be. Read on to find out why.
Enjoying a home pool is one of life’s great pleasures for Australians. Nothing quite beats a cooling dip on a hot day and swimming provides great exercise for people of all ages.
But however inviting it may look, the water in your pool may harbour all kind of pollutants ranging from excess chlorine to microbes and algae. Regular and thorough water testing is the only way to stay sure your pool is safe and healthy for you and your family.
Testing Your Pool Water
You should take a good look at your pool every day before using it. Check if the water’s clear and if there’s been any change from the previous day. However, to be really sure your pool water is in good shape, you need to test for such matters as the pH and chlorine levels.
pH refers to the level of acidity in the water. A reading of between 7 and 7.6 is ideal. Outside of this subjects swimmers to the risk of skin rashes and eye problems.
Chlorine levels have to be optimised. Too high and they can cause ear, eye and skins problems. Too low and they won’t do their job of keeping your pool hygienic.
