During the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro the swimming pools turned dark green.

Mobile apps continue to transform the way we do business. No industry is immune from disruption as more apps enter the market every day. In the water quality industry, apps enable employees to get more done in less time, covering more ground along the way. Instead of having to physically inspect water quality, employees can use mobile apps that complement specific water quality instruments like pH testers and conductivity testers to track important data on their phones, keeping tabs on water stored in various locations from one device. This enables them to monitor more water in more locations more efficiently.
