While every pool owner knows it is important to test the water, not everyone does or even knows why. Here are a few reasons testing the water is so crucial to maintaining a healthy swimming pool.

Key Reasons To Perform Regular Swimming Pool Water Testing

Swimming Pool Safety

The mos​t obvious and important reason for testing your water is making sure your swimmers are safe. Water that is not properly cared for can turn into a breeding ground for dangerous bacteria, algae and other disease causing pathogens. If not treated regularly swimmers can develop skin infections and rashes. It is essential to keep your water in balance in order to keep you and your family safe, and also to avoid having embarrassing conversations with other parents.


Swimming in a pool should naturally be a pleasant experience. You want to do laps, play games with the kids or simply lounge around in an inner tube without having to worry about red stinging eyes. It's hard to have too much fun in a pool, except when it is painful to get in the water. Too much acid in the pool water can result in red, stinging bloodshot eyes. Likewise, when there is too much bromide or chlorine, the water can leave your skin itchy. The water in your pool should be inviting and not something you want to avoid. Regular swimming pool water testing can help keep your water comfortable.

Make Your Swimming Pool Last Longer

Swimming pools are not a cheap investment for your family and maintaining them requires a commitment. As a result, you're going to want them to last as long as possible. When pool water is out of balance, it can actually become corrosive and do costly damage to the metal components in your pool, such as water pumps and heating elements. It can also cause rubber elements like O-rings to dissolve over time. The more these important pool components break down, the more likely your pool will suffer very expensive damage.

Testing Saves Money

Damaged pumps and heaters need to be replaced more often when the water isn't balanced. With regular swimming pool water testing, you might start to notice how these components actually respond positively when the water is well balanced.


However, as your pool equipment starts to rust and degrade, you'll naturally need to call for more frequent pool services and pool repairs. When the expense of owning a pool starts to get out of control, it becomes a lot less fun to have one. The primary reason we see that homeowners become disenchanted with their pools is because they don't test the water enough. After all, you can't go swimming as much when the pool is constantly being repaired and how can you be excited about it when it costs so much extra money to have one.
