Enjoying a refreshing swim in your pool is an incomparable pleasure. But for this pleasure to last, it is essential to keep your pool water clean and healthy. This involves regular analysis and control of its key parameters.

In this article, we will explore the different aspects of pool water analysis and control, addressing the following points:

1. The importance of analyzing your pool water

  • Bather's Health: Unbalanced water can cause skin irritations, red eyes, and respiratory problems.
  • Bathing Comfort: Cloudy or greenish water is not pleasant for swimming.
  • Equipment Durability: Poorly maintained water can damage your pool's liner, pumps, and filters.
  • Cost Savings: Proper maintenance reduces the consumption of chemicals and energy.

2. Parameters to analyze

  • pH: It should be between 7.2 and 7.6. Too low or too high pH can cause irritations and corrosion problems.
  • Disinfectant Level: It should be sufficient to kill bacteria and algae. The type of disinfectant used (chlorine, bromine, etc.) will influence the appropriate level.
  • Total Alkalinity (TA): It measures the water's ability to neutralize acids. Too low TA can lead to pH variation.
  • Total Hardness (TH): It indicates the concentration of calcium and magnesium. Too low TH can make the water corrosive, while too high TH can make it cloudy.

3. How to analyze pool water

  • Test Strips: They are easy to use and quickly measure pH, chlorine, and sometimes other parameters.
  • Colorimetric Analysis Kits: They provide a more precise measurement of multiple parameters.
  • Electronic Tester: It is the most accurate option but also the most expensive.

Pool water analysis is usually done in three steps: sampling, water analysis, and interpretation of results. It can be done manually or automatically.

4. Automatic Analysis and Control

Controlling your pool water is not complicated but requires time and regular monitoring. Pool water needs frequent checks to maintain its balance and disinfecting power. Fortunately, there are automatic and connected devices that are easy to install and use, making pool analysis and control worry-free.

By regularly analyzing and controlling your pool water, you can ensure the health of bathers, bathing comfort, and the durability of your equipment.
