Wrong! So many elements effect water/chemical levels of a pool. It is crucial to check them all – and often!
To start off, you want to have a good testing kit. The most common one that we see is the pool test strips.
Testing strips are generally cheap, easy to use, and they save time when testing. But, they are much less accurate than liquid drop test kits and they can easily spoil.
Of course, the best thing you can do is hire us! 🙂 We check the chemical levels in the pool, sweep and clean your pool on a weekly basis!
Either way, be sure to check your levels regularly and often. The hotter it gets, the faster the chlorine will dissipate. The more chlorine that dissipates, the more algae and bacteria grows and makes it difficult to get under control.
