How often should you check your pool water chemistry?
It's recommended to check the water chemistry of your pool at least once a week, especially during the swimming season. It's also important to check the chemistry after heavy rain, after heavy usage, or after adding water to the pool. In addition, if you notice any changes in the appearance or feel of the water, you should test it immediately.
Checking the pH, total alkalinity, chlorine levels, and calcium hardness are the minimum parameters you should check. It's also recommended to check the total dissolved solids (TDS) and stabilizer levels to ensure the pool water is properly balanced.
Regular testing and balancing of the pool water chemistry is important to maintain clear and safe water for swimming, and to prevent damage to pool equipment and surfaces.
