Pool Water Analysis
Whilst having a pool on your property means easy access to a refreshing swim, is it always something that you can guarantee? Just because your pool water looks clean, does not mean that it necessarily is. In fact, the water could be containing a number of harmful chemicals and contaminants, completely naked to the human eye. They can cause irritation and discomfort, or sometimes even worse, if not maintained. Managing the chemicals in your swimming pool is not an easy task without the right knowledge and equipment, so when you need it doing, seek out professional help. At Pool Cleaners Las Vegas, we deliver a comprehensive water analysis service, to help breakdown the contents of your water and make recommendations on how to restore a healthy environment.
Water Sample Testing
The first step of any water analysis is to find out exactly what the chemical contents of it, are. For that, we need to carry out a sample test of your pool water. We take random samples and apply a number of different testing methods, so that we can analyze key aspects that may need to be treated. Doing this means that we can quickly find accurate results and take informed measures towards restoring the original water quality.
One of the most obvious things that needs to be maintained, is the overall pH balance of your pool. Ideally, you want your pool water to be a very neutral figure, not being far from a 7.4 – 7.6 reading. Anything below this will be too acidic and could cause you dry and irritable skin. In the opposite view, a higher reading will be too alkaline and will cause damage to your pool and its components. It is necessary to reach the ideal level, so that all of these factors can be negated and you can enjoy the most comfortable swim. We use an accurate chemical testing process, using the collected sample of your water.
Chlorine is the chemical that people are most familiar with, when it comes to swimming pools. It is the product that is typically used for cleaning and something which we all see as part of the makeup of a pool. However, too much chlorine can actually be dangerous, causing skin and eye irritation, as well as potentially leading to respiratory issues. It is important to maintain a healthy level of chlorine in any pool, so when you need to find out the levels in your water, call us for our testing service.
It is not so commonly known, that there are many other chemicals which can build up in pool water. Bromine is another, which is sometimes present in cleaning products. Much like chlorine, it is acidic and corrosive, meaning, that if there is too much in your pool water, you could be causing irritation or burning to your skin and eyes. Similarly used in cleaning agents, cyanuric acid is a product used to defend chlorine from sunlight. However, too much of it can actually render the chlorine useless, leaving your pool open to getting more contaminated than it really should be. You can trust us to run all of the necessary tests, to find out how we can be improving your water quality.
