Owning a pool has always been quite a perk, though ownership comes with responsibilities. Older pools required quite a lot of upkeep to maintain and owners sometimes found themselves spending as much time working on their pools as they did relaxing in them. These days however, owning a pool is easier than ever!
Keeping pool water balanced is imperative. Balanced water is not only clear and sparkling to look at, but also healthy and safe to swim in. Unbalanced pool water can lead to a myriad of problems both to the pool and the swimmer.
The original method of testing chemical levels in the water involved using a special testing kit. Using the kit required the pool owner to regularly take samples of the pool water and add drops of a reagent to it. The samples would then change color and would need to be compared to charts to determine chemical levels. Testing kits are still an option for pool owners and some prefer them as they can be very accurate when used correctly. The problem is that there’s a lot of room for error and the job can be a bit tedious.
Luckily, test strips are now very commonly used for their convenience and efficiency. Pool owners simply dip a strip in the water and compare the colors to a chart to see chemical levels. These strips are safe and user-friendly, making the chore of balancing chemicals easier than ever.

These days, some pool companies are full service businesses. They not only build pools, they also service them. This means that they often provide conveniences such as:
- Water testing
- Pool opening and closing
- Chemical balancing
- Emergency services.
Having a business you trust available to take care of some or all of your pool needs, means that you have more time to enjoy your pool.
In years gone by, people didn’t make owning a pool so much about the experience. You simply had a pool and you possibly set up a couple of folding chairs beside it. Nowadays there are so many options for creating a stunning outdoor escape. Modern pool furniture is inviting, comfortable, stylish and beckoning you to spend all of your free time outside at the pool.
