Well, its summer and our backyard pool is open.  With few exceptions, each year a new chemical balancing act is conducted.  Test after test is run until the perfect balance has been achieved between free chlorine, calcium hardness, Ph and total alkalinity.  The pool water tests can be run at your local pool supply store, but the chemicals you add to your pool water to reach that perfect chemical balance, were tested prior to marketing by an independent materials testing lab such as NSL Analytical Services
