Presentation by Wayne Ivusich, Taylor Technologies
Originally aired April 3, 2020

Pool operations is important enough that we don't let *just* anyone do it. Yet, lifeguards are completing important water chemistry tests without any training, and their test results are guiding chemical changes. Learn basic tips & strategies to improve water testing - and water quality - at your aquatic facility.
