How To Test The Chlorine and pH Of Your Pool

Video Transcription

Nick Masse of Arizona Pool Service: Hi, I’m Nick Masse of Arizona Pool Service. We service areas of Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Queen Creek, and Tempe. We’re going to test the chlorine and pH of a pool today. Chlorine and pH are the most important things of a pool. It keeps the pool blue and healthy to swim in.

First thing we’re going to do is test your chlorine reading.

Then we just shake it and we found out the chlorine reading. According to our test reading, it says it’s a zero reading, so that means we have to add a gallon of chlorine and some tablets to the pool.

Now, we’re going to test the pH.

Shake it again and measure up the thing which is at 7.8. You chlorine reading, you want to keep between a one and a two, that’s a healthy level to swim in. It guarantees no bacteria in your pool and your pH, you want to keep between a 7.4 and a 7.6. That keeps down the irritation like your itching, your bleaching of your eyes and bleaching of your hair. So the only thing that we’re going to do to this pool today is add a gallon of chlorine to the pool and it’ll be healthy to swim in within about 30 minutes.

Nick Masse of Arizona Pool Service: I’m Nick Masse, owner of Arizona Pool Service. We service Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Queen Creek, and Tempe. We provide weekly pool maintenance when we come out to service a pool. We’ll brush it, skim out all the debris, empty all your pump baskets, skimmer and pump basket, backwash the filter if necessary, balance out all your chemicals; your chlorine, pH and alkalinities, and then make sure the pool’s overall clean and healthy for swimming.

There are three types of filters. You have Sand, Cartridge, and DE filters. Sand filters are what they sound like, it’s a sand filter. Needs to be cleaned, needs to be backwashed once a month and the sand needs to be changed out every five to seven years. Then you have your DE filters. They need to be backwashed once a month and complete breakdown every six months. Then, you have your Cartridge filter, which is just a paper filter. Those need to be cleaned out every three to six months and the only thing you do is hose them down.

We also provide pool repair. We’ll replace all your pool motors, upgrade your pool filter and equipment, clean out your cartridge filters, do deck repairs, pool remodeling, you name it, we can do it for you.
