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