Top 10 Reasons to Get an In-Store Water Test

Testing your pool water is one of the most important things you can do to keep your pool clean, safe, and beautiful. When it comes to testing pool water, many owners wonder if it's something they can do themselves. Or can they just bring a sample into their local Leslie's? 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. It's free!

When it comes to services for your pool — or anything, really — it doesn’t get much better than FREE. No hidden fees, no strings attached. It’s simple: bring a water sample to your local Leslie's, and we'll do the work for you.

3. We test more.

Sometimes, more really is better. Most at-home water tests only analyze 3 or 4 key indicators (pH, Free Available Chlorine, Total Alkalinity, and Cyanuric Acid). Our industry-leading AccuBlue® water test precisely measures 10 aspects of pool water chemistry. The more you know about your pool water, the better.

4. Our water tests are accurate.

Let’s face it, water test accuracy is imperative to know exactly what you should do to balance your pool’s chemistry. We perform our water tests in a controlled environment with the most accurate testing system available — Leslie's AccuBlue. This means you'll get a consistent and accurate result every time.
