Swimming Pool Water Quality

Swimming Pool Water Quality

As part of our routine sampling plan we monitor swimming pool water quality. We undertake pool side chemical analysis and obtain a sample for submission to an accredited laboratory for microbiological examination. This provides an independent check of the pool water quality.

In the event of problems, we can give advice on possible causes and solutions. Where necessary, enforcement action can be taken to secure closure until the swimming pool is safe to use.

The parameters we test for at the pool side include chlorine levels and pH. Bacteriological tests includes Total Viable Count, E. coli, coliforms and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Our tests are carried out in addition to the pool operators own testing regime.

We currently carry out tests at Alloa Leisure Bowl, Alloa Academy and Dollar Academy.
