Water Sampling Tips

WATER TESTING BY YOUR AUTHORIZED DEALER

There will be times when you take a water sample to your Authorized Dealer for professional analysis.  For example, after you add a significant amount of new water, or after a heavy rain.  In fact, it’s a good idea to take a sample to your Authorized Dealer about once a month during the season.

HERE ARE A FEW GUIDELINES TO HELP ENSURE A GOOD WATER SAMPLE:

  1. Your water sample should be at least one pint.
  2. Take your sample about 18″ below the surface, away from the skimmer or filter returns.
  3. Take the sample in a water sample bottle, or in a clean plastic container.
  4. Take the sample to your Authorized Dealer as soon as you remove it from the pool; don’t let the water sit.

 

NOTE:

Never take a pool water sample immediately after adding chemicals or after adding significant amounts of makeup water.  Always allow the water to circulate for 8-12 hours before taking a sample.
