Pool & Spa Testing

Pool and Spa Testing

When you have a pool or spa, you want to make sure that you are using the correct products at the right times to keep the pool crystal clear. After all, applying the wrong chemicals to the pool at the wrong time throws the chemical balance off, potentially leading to infections and mould or algae growth. That’s why pool and spa testing is important.

We offer a range of pool and spa testing products, from chlorine testing to pH testing kits that establish whether the water is safe for swimming. By offering high-quality testing equipment, we are proud to state that we are protecting swimmers across the country and making pool experiences as positive as can be.
