Chemical testing

Your pool water needs to be tested on a regular basis. Each individual test kit is different but the principal is the same. Fill the tester with water and add the appropriate tablet to the test tube.

Add DPD 1 for chlorine testing and Phenol Red for PH testing.

Shake the tester until both tablets are dissolved then compare the test with the colour chart.

The ideal range for chlorine is between 1.0 – 2.0 ppm and PH between 7.2 -7.6. When adding chemicals add little and often as this will keep a stable level rather than an erratic variation.
