Swimming Pool Testing

Sidebar Image

Your pool is constantly picking up dirt and bacteria that are blown in by wind, washed in by rain and carried in by the people (and animals) that swim in your pool. In addition, under the New Zealand Swimming Pool Standard 5826:2010 a public pool is defined as any pool other than for domestic use, and includes commercial, school, institutional, club, hospitality industry, community and local authority pools. Under this definition, any pool used by a member of the public must be tested.

Keeping your pool chemistry balanced ensures that the chlorine will do what it is meant to, as well as reducing the likelihood of needing expensive maintenance due to corrosion or scaling of pumps and other pool components

We assist pool owners with the understanding of testing services available, offering a fully IANZ accredited scope of laboratory tests to meet New Zealand Swimming Pool Standard 5826:2010 and an IANZ accredited sampling service.
