The water in your pool is a living, breathing eco-system. Which means that is requires constant care to make sure that it stays in a state of optimal health.

And that’s true even if your pool goes unused for some periods during the year. There are many ways that your pool could go “out of balance” even if you feel that your pool has not had any activity. At the very least, you should test on a weekly basis and make adjustments as required.

Be sure to get your water samples from at least 18-20 inches below the water surface and away from the any returns or water jets. We recommend that you maintain a log of your weekly tests so that you can determine if there is any pattern occurring when it does go out of balance. It’s almost like being a great detective uncovering clues to your pool’s potential problems.
