Rain and its affect on pool water – Kingston Pools and Hot Tubs – Knapp’s Pools and Hot Tubs

How does rain affect your pool water.  Well not only does it dilute the water but it can also bring with it contaminates that are airborne along with potential phosphate.  Therefore it’s essential that you get your water tested after a heavy rain.  Phosphate in pool water is food for algae.  With rainfall diluting your pool water your risk for algae increases as your sanitizer gets diluted and phosphate may be present which algae thrives on.

We offer on site water testing or you can simply bring us a sample of your pool water to be tested.  Don’t risk cloudy or green algae infested water.  Get your water tested.
