A swimming pool water test may be carried out for health-related concerns or requested by municipalities to ensure the quality of swimming-pool water or a body of water in compliance with current standards. Among other things, the test can determine if additives are doing their work effectively in current concentrations in accordance with water pH levels.
A swimming pool water test is also used whenever unusual problems appear, for example, seaweed, black deposit marks on the walls, change of water colour at depth or the appearance of redness in the eyes or skin spots.
Testing your swimming pool water
We conduct swimming pool water tests in accordance with methods recognized by the Quebec government’s department for sustainable development, the environment, and parks (MDDEP) and Canadian Norme, in compliance with ISO 17025 certification. Thanks to swimming pool water tests, we can detect the presence of Escherichia coli (fecal matter), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (chlorination or salt-related problems), and Staphylococcus aureus (filter problems).
Results – both for swimming pools and bodies of water – are delivered in 72 hours. Preliminary results for Escherichia coli (E. coli) and Staphylococcus aureus may be delivered more quickly (less than 72 hours following the reception of samples at our laboratory). We issue a swimming pool water test report per sample in order to avoid confusion involving the various samples.
Once we have detected a problem, we provide targeted solutions to restore water quality. These may include additive-dilution methods, changes to the list of biological and chemical products, change of filter (depending on the size and type), and checking the water-treatment schedule and compliance parameters.
