Summer Safety Tips

Everyone knows that the best way to stay cool when summer hits is to jump in the pool. With Memorial Day just around the corner, you can see how popular this sentiment is as public and private pools alike begin to fill up for the summer season. While pools are a great way to cool down, relax, and enjoy time with friends and family, there are a few safety guidelines one should always keep in mind when in or around a pool.

Pool Water Test Kits and Swimming Pool Maintenance

Owning or running a pool can be a lot of fun, it means constant access to water activities as well as ample opportunities to have neighbors and friends over to enjoy your pool as well. If you want to be a responsible pool operator though, you need to make sure that the water in your pool is safe for everyone to enjoy. This means being vigilant in testing the water using a variety of methods to ensure that the pH balance is correct and safe. If the pH balance is too low, the water will become too acidic, meaning that swimmers’ skin can become dry, itchy and irritated. Acidic water can also burn swimmers’ eyes and noses as well as bleached meaning that new bathing suit will look worn and ragged pretty quickly. In addition to this if the water in a pool isn’t within the correct pH range, the chlorine you use in order to keep bacteria and algae at bay will not work, this can lead to unsafe swimming conditions and possibly even illness if the problem is not remedied immediately.
