Pool Shop & Pool Chemicals in Wangara-Perth

Owning a  Swimming Pool is one of the biggest investments you can have. That’s why at Jubilee Pool Shop Supplies we believe that testing your water regularly is fundamental. It will save you money or expensive maintenance bills, and particularly if you’re using your pool frequently, it will ensure a great swim every time.

As a pool owner, what are you testing for and how often?

Essentially, the more you test your pool water, the healthier it should be.


To properly sanitise your water, chlorine should be checked two or three times a week.

pH Level

Check your pH when you check your chlorine as they work together. If your pH is in check, your chlorine will be an effective sanitiser.

Total Alkalinity

For most pool owners, you’ll only need to test this once a week. Total alkalinity influences the stability of your pH levels, so keeping an eye on these numbers is essential for overall maintenance.

Salt Levels

This will depend on your salt chlorination system, testing monthly is recommended.

Calcium Hardness

Generally speaking, you should only need to test for hardness once a month. It’s important to note that this level will fluctuate depending on the weather and the chemicals you add to your pool.

Total Dissolved Solids

These are everything else that has dissolved in the water. If it’s too high, it’ll disturb the efficiency of other chemicals. Check this at least once a month.

Green Pool

Test your swimming pool water. … When chlorine levels drop below 1 ppm, it can cause algae to grow in the pool, turning the pool water green. When this happens it is necessary to “shock” the water with chemicals to kill the algae and return the pool to normal chlorine levels.
