Top 10 Reasons to Get an In-Store Water Test

Leslie's Free 10-point water test

Testing your pool water is one of the most important things you can do to keep your pool healthy, clean, and clear. When it comes to testing pool water, many owners wonder if it's something they can do themselves. And if so, can they just bring a sample into their local Leslie's store? The answer to both of those questions is: absolutely!

Here are 10 reasons why bringing your water into Leslie's might be the perfect solution for you:

1. Leslie's is a name you can trust

Simply said, you won’t find this level of top-notch customer service and high-quality products anywhere else. We're your one-stop pool-shop, and our pool care experts have been helping owners for more than 50 years!

2. We test more

Sometimes, more really is better. Most at-home water tests only test for 3 or 4 key indicators (pH, Free Available Chlorine, Total Alkalinity, and Cyanuric Acid). We test for 10 key indicators. The more indicators, the better.

3. Our water tests are accurate

Let’s face it, water test accuracy is imperative to knowing exactly what actions you should take regarding your pool’s chemistry. Although our stores aren't laboratories, we perform our water tests in a controlled environment. This means you will get a consistent and accurate result every time.

4. We're experts at testing pool water

We feel very comfortable saying nobody has done more water tests than Leslie's. Combine that with our expert on-site advice, and it’s a recipe for success. After all, Leslie’s Pool Supplies Service & Repair pioneered free water testing in our stores.

5. Our system keeps your pool algae-free

By simply using a quality sanitizer, shocking your pool, adding Perfect Weekly, and getting your water tested in-store every 30-days will keep your pool healthy and clear.

8. Quality products on-site

After you have your test results, you don't have to look elsewhere to get the right solution for your pool.
