Walmart is Trying to Get in on the Pool Industry

Posted by Jacqui Blanton on Apr 17th 2014

Walmart sells everything you can think of and more. They’re even trying to compete with Kroger and dollar stores where I live. But until recently they hadn’t tried to compete with the pool industry. However, it looks like that’s about to change.
Select Walmarts in the U.S. now have water test kiosks where customers can analyze their pool water.
The water test kiosks require customers to read, understand, and follow instructions to the letter. It sounds simple enough right?
Personally, I’d rather have a professional come to my pool to test it. Water testing is very delicate, and a single mistake can contaminate your results.
Having a professional test your pool water ensures it gets done properly. And it can save you money. If a test is done incorrectly you may end up buying chemicals you didn’t actually need.

Would you test your pool water at Walmart? Why or why not?
