Is There a Way to Test For PoolRx Minerals in My Swimming Pool Water?
Wondering If I Test For PoolRx Minerals in my Swimming Pool Water
The answer is You Can Not. PoolRx minerals are uniquely chelated. This is one of the things that sets PoolRx apart from other copper-based products. PoolRx’s chelation protects it’s minerals at a molecular level, so they DO NOT fall out of solution and stain the swimming pool due to overoxidation or pH fluctuations. Because of this chelation, if you test for copper after using PoolRx, you will not get an accurate or consistent reading.
So, if you think you have copper coming into the water from some other source like well water, old copper plumbing, old copper heat exchanger that is leaching copper in the water, other copper based products, etc., be sure to TEST for Copper first.
If you are at 0.2ppm or less, it’s OK to use PoolRx. If above that 0.2ppm, resolve those issues before using PoolRx. Once you have added PoolRx in the swimming pool water your copper reading will not be reliable until 6 months later when PoolRx minerals have been used.
