Water samples should be taken 12 -18” below the surface from the deep end of the pool while the pool is circulating. Your sample should be at least 8ozs and collected in a plastic container. Complimentary water sample bottles are available at any of our retail outlets upon request.
For the most accurate results, the sample should be tested within 2 hours from when the sample was taken from the pool. For the most accurate testing, we advise that you do not leave the water sample anywhere that might result in a temperature change of more than 10 degrees (i.e. a car left in a hot parking lot).
Should you prefer to do your water testing at home, we also offer a variety of water testing kits including test strips and liquid kits.
