Swimming pools are a great way to have fun, cool down from the heat, entertain, and even get in some exercise, but how safe are public pools?
Community swimming pools have become a place for potential health concerns. A recent CDC report shows an increase for recreational water illness (RWI).
Recreational water illnesses (RWIs) are caused by germs and chemicals found in the water we swim in. They are spread by swallowing, breathing in mists or aerosols of, or having contact with contaminated water in swimming pools, hot tubs, water parks, water play areas, interactive fountains, lakes, rivers, or oceans. RWIs can also be caused by chemicals in the water or chemicals that turn into gas in the air and cause air quality problems at indoor aquatic facilities.
Knowing the basic facts about RWIs can make the difference between an enjoyable time at the pool, beach, or waterpark, and getting a rash, having diarrhea, or developing other, potentially serious illnesses.
Keep your family safe from waterborne illnesses
A day at the community swimming pool may seem like a great time, but between the maintenance that goes into keeping up a community pool, equipment failure, and the sheer number of people going into the water, can be putting the health of you and your family at risk. Can you be certain when the chemical levels were last checked? Are they in range for fighting off bacteria? How about the body functions of the other swimmers? That beautiful afternoon at the pool can quickly turn into a week long sickness!
