Pool Water Testing

pool water testing

Regular, professional pool water testing is necessary even when you test your water at home. Just bring in a small container with your pool water for a free water test every time you visit the store to pick up your pool supplies. Our sophisticated pool water testing system provides precise and accurate readings of all important pool chemicals and minerals.

You should always test your water at home to make sure your water stays balanced. Regular home testing will help you keep an eye on your pool chemicals such as chlorine, pH levels, alkalinity, and hardness. Professional pool testing includes accurate readings on all chemicals and minerals that are difficult to read or not tested on home test strips or kits.

Come in for your free pool water testing. Just bring in a small container with your pool water and we will test for the following chemicals:

  • Free Chlorine
  • Total Chlorine (or Total Bromine for spas)
  • pH
  • Total Alkalinity
  • Calcium Hardness
  • Cyanuric Acid
  • Iron
  • Copper
  • Borate
  • Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)
  • Phosphate
  • Manganese
  • Salt (for salt water chlorine generator pools)



Our highly trained and experienced store personnel have dealt with just about every conceivable water chemistry issue. We have seen pools with green water, brown water, white water, red water, purple water and yellow water. We have seen pools covered with large purple crystals, pools so thick with algae that plants started growing in the middle of the pool, pools so cloudy it looked like a pool full of milk and pools where every surface was coated with a thick layer of rust. There has not been a single instance where we were not able to get the pool crystal clear. The test takes about 2-3 minutes, comes with a full printout of current water conditions and recommendations, and is completely free of charge.
