In response to member requests, STA is pleased to confirm that a new up-to-date pool water testing video has been created in partnership with Lovibond®, the leading experts in water analysis and colour measurement.
The video, which is available to watch now on YouTube, summarises the basic requirements of testing swimming pool water in line with the latest manufacturer recommendations, and in accordance with industry best practice and guidance. The professionally produced video has also been embedded into the following updated tutor resources, which are available to download now from STA Online:
- STA Level 3 Award in Pool Plant Operations – PowerPoint Presentation v23.1
- STA Level 2 Award in Pool Water Treatment – PowerPoint Presentation v23.1
- STA Level 2 Award in Swimming Pool Water Testing – PowerPoint Presentation v23.1.
Luke Griffiths, STA’s Qualification Development Manager for Pool Plant, says; ‘‘Correct and accurate pool water testing is of critical importance and it was fantastic to work with Colin Day and Lovibond® to produce this short but informative video. We feel that the video will work as a useful summary tool within the qualification resources. We are also making it available on YouTube so employers can use it for any in-house training or standardisation training they deliver.’’
Colin Day from Lovibond® added; “It was great to work with Luke and the STA team in producing this video. At Lovibond® we are passionate about testing and hope the video will help people understand the importance of good water analysis and testing techniques and become a useful tool for all in the leisure industry.”
STA highly recommends that employers ensure any employee responsible for water testing gains a suitable qualification. STA have three professional qualifications available, which suit the needs of those involved in varying degrees of pool plant work – from routine water testing to the full management and operation of a pool plant facility.
