Camlab Pool Testing Kits

Water testing is important when maintaining a pool or hot tub to make sure the water is safe to be in. The water can end up having too many or too little chemicals in it which can affect the pools hygiene and bacteria levels. The most frequently tested parameters are pH, chlorine (free and total), bromine, alkalinity and calcium hardness. Camlab have created water testing kits for testing these parameters, to help maintain the chemicals within the ideal range.
