Quickly & Easily Test Pool Water

Test Your Water

How often you should test and balance your pool water can vary based on how often you use it and a number of other variables; but it’s important to remember that for chlorine and pH, you should usually test your pool 2-3 times/week. That may sound like a lot, but water balance is vital for your pool’s health & the health of the people who swim in it.

Shock Weekly

In ideal circumstances, shocking your pool just once a week will keep it looking clean and clear; but any heavy rainfall, signs of algae, use by lots of swimmers, or periods of very sunny weather can deplete free chlorine levels, which means an extra dose of hth® Shock is needed. Sundown is the optimum time to shock your pool because the chlorine can work without fighting the sun's ultraviolet rays and has more time to restore water clarity.
