What Chemicals Do the Tablets Test For?
Testing your water is an important pool maintenance task you need to stay on top of. Take a look at our guide to water testing your pool for an introductory look into the subject.
When used with the right comparator test kit, test tablets offer a quick and easy way to read your water levels. With the help of various tablets, you can accurately check the levels of the following:
- - Free chlorine
- - Free bromine
- - Total chlorine
- - Total bromine
- - pH level
Pool owners will need to check these levels fairly regularly to ensure pool water is topped up with sanitisers and is safe to swim in.
Some tablets can also help you test for:
- Cyanuric acid
- Calcium hardness

Balancing Your Pool Water
If upon testing your water, you find that the chemicals are not at the right levels, you will need to take action to balance the water.
Ideally, pH should be at around 7.4 – if it is not, you will need to add water balancers like pH increasers and decreasers accordingly.
Chlorine and bromine levels can also be easily adjusted with either a shock treatment or reducer. To find out more about water treatments and the correct levels you'll require, see our guide to the chemicals you need for a swimming pool.
