    Testing in the rain?

    This may be a dumb question, but I can't seem to find an answer (and get lost reading about solar covers and other stuff that pops up in my results...I'm easily distracted )

    Should I test my pool water when it's raining out? Or wait until the rain passes?

    Can I get accurate results in the rain?

    Just curious...

    Thanks!

    If it rains for days ... your pool will be in a world of hurt if you are not testing and adding chlorine.

    Of course it will be accurate ... you are testing the actual water in the pool. You should take the water sample from down as deep as you can reach and do the testing inside out of the rain.
