    Pool temp and accurate chemical readings

    Hi there, we just opened up our pool and I want check our chemical readings but the pool temp is still only 60 degrees. Do I need to wait until the pool is warmer to test or can I test now? It looks clean and clear but want to make sure we keep it that way. ( I'm wondering about chlorine levels, cya, ph, etc).

    Re: Pool temp and accurate chemical readings

    The only test in your kit that can sometimes be affected by temperature is the cyanuric acid (CYA) test. The rest are fine. For the CYA test, let your sample warm up to room temperature before adding the reagent to eliminate the possibility of it being off a bit.
