It's recommended to test your water poolside at least once a week -- although 2 - 3 times per week is preferred -- and have a professional sample test performed once a month with your local and trusted pool professional.
You should always test the water's chemistry prior to use, to ensure that Free Chlorine and pH levels are agreeable for swimmers.
Also, since exceptional events (pool parties, storms, rain, heavy debris, etc.) will have expected impacts on your water balance, you should always test after these instances and adjust or treat accordingly.
If any treatments are necessary, be sure to confirm proper balance levels after 24 - 48 hours and always before resuming swimming.
