A fact sheet from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed that every year, recreational water venues (swimming pools, hot tubs, lakes, and oceans) receive more than 360 million visits from individuals around the United States. Over 6.6 million hot tubs are currently in operation in the country, and over 8.8 million residential and public-use swimming pools are being enjoyed by adults and children alike. This makes swimming the third most popular recreational activity in the United States and the most popular recreational activity for kids.

How to Use PurTest Pool and Spa Bacteria Test Kit
Testing pool water or spa water for bacteria is important to ensure that water is safe and clean for your guests to use. Bacteria like E. Coli may be present in the water and can make people – especially children – sick. This pool and spa bacteria testing kit detects E. Coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, species of shigella, Enterobacterand many other coliformand non-coliformbacteria. To perform the test, you’ll only need one dropper-full of pool water or spa water in the sample vial included in the kit. Gently swirl the vial and let it stand for seven minutes. Swirl vial again and set vial on a flat surface. Place strip into sample vial with arrows pointing down. Do not disturb strip or vial during this time.
How to Read the Result

Reddish lines will appear on the strips in a few minutes to reflect if your water contains bacteria levels that are dangerous to people’s health.

Therefore, it’s important that you read the instructions thoroughly before opening the foil pouch and administering the test.
PurTest Pool and Spa Bacteria testing kit is ideal for homeowners with pools or recreational pool and spa operators to test the presence of bacteria in their pool water or spa water. Swimming pools are heavily exposed bodies of water and are thus more prone to contamination. Various classes of bacteria can be easily transported into the pool water by the environment or by the pool users. Unfortunately, some strains of bacteria have developed resistance to the chlorine we use as a sanitizer in our swimming pools. While pool water bacteria and germs are destroyed easily, others remain active for days; hence, an increased demand for alternative sanitizers able to quickly and effectively destroy the disease carrying organisms.
