The health benefits of swimming

Have you ever see a flabby dolphin or a weak-looking competitive swimmer? I think we all know the answer is no! This is because water is around 800 times denser than air which means that it creates more resistance when you move in the water. When this is combined with the many different strokes that you can perform you can get great muscle tone and definition. Additionally warm water has been shown to help loosen stiff joints and help with arthritis.

The Pool Gem water testing kit is a quick and easy way to keep track of the pool temperature and other aspects such as the pH and chlorine levels. This information is recorded and sent to an in home receiver where the information is clearly displayed. Not only does this digital pool testing system help you keep track of what is going on in your pool but it can save you money by not heating your pool more than you think!

Why water quality testing is important?

Using chemicals is one of the best ways to keep your pool clean but it can be difficult to fully understand what you need to do to maintain the quality of your pool water. The chemicals you need can also be very dangerous in the wrong hands so its important to keep an eye on the chemical levels in the water. The correct pH level is important for safe swimming as acidic/basic water causes irritation to the eyes,  skin and the pool itself.

Too much chlorine can also cause irritation to the eyes, skin, throat and even cause breathing difficulties. Too little chlorine could also result in poor sanitation leaving the pool unsafe to swim in. One of the easiest ways to help prevent all these problems is the Pool Gem pool testing systems.

The Pool Gem can measure the pH, temp, chlorine and phosphate levels in the water and above all provide dosing information to prevent any slip ups.
