Monthly Microbiological Test for Swimming Pools

Our swimming pool test checks that your pool water meets the requirements of the Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group.

The test kit includes a single sterile bottle for the following analysis:-

  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Total Viable Count @ 37°C (for 24 hours)
  • E.Coli
  • Coliforms
     

Danger Areas

Microbiological problems should be low in well managed swimming pools so long as the pH and residual disinfectant concentrations are correct.
Routine sampling should be undertaken every month and/or before the pool is first used after a shut down for repairs.

The normal tests are Colony (Plate) counts, commonly know as TVCs (total viable counts) plus Coliform bacteria, particularly Escherichia coli (E.coli).

If the pool experiences operational problems such as a disinfection failure or there are suspected health problems attributed to the pool water, further testing may be required for Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus. In cases of known contamination, others analysis for Cryptosporidium, Giardia or Legionella may be required.
