Bather comfort and safety is essential to any pool operator. To ensure this and the efficient running of the pool, the pool water quality must be continuously monitored. The Pool Chemistry Guide gives you a definition of the parameters that are most important in the pool industry, a guide to the recommended levels, and the effects of poor water monitoring.
