Checking chemical levels in your pool throughout the season is key to maintaining well-balanced water. Your local Authorized BAQUACIL® Dealer is your best resource for in-store water testing and advice for a proper diagnosis and the products needed to correct anything that might be out of sync. You can also test the water yourself and compare it to the chart provided in our BAQUACIL® CDX® Pool Care Guide on page 19. For your convenience, the key steps are outlined below:
Dip a strip for one second and remove
IMPORTANT: Do not "swish" or move the strip back and forth as this will affect the accuracy of the test. Ensure you dip the test strip fully into the water until the water reaches your elbow.
Remove the test strip from the water and hold the strip level horizontally, pad side up, and immediately compare BAQUACIL® Oxidizer pad to the color chart on the test strip bottle. Do not shake excess water from the test strip.
After fifteen seconds, compare the remaining strip colors to the corresponding color blocks on the BAQUACIL® 4-Way Test Strip bottle. Record the results of your test in the Pool Maintenance Log in the inside of the BAQUACIL® CDX® Pool Care Guide.
IMPORTANT: If the levels indicated on your strip need adjustment, refer to the Water Balance section in the BAQUACIL® CDX® Pool Care Guide.
