Lately we have been getting the following question from our customers, "can you get Coronavirus (COVID-19) from swimming pool water?" According to the CDC:
"there is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19."
To ensure proper operation, maintenance and disinfection, keep your pool water balanced! To test your pool water, test strips will come in real handy. The main disinfection used is chlorine which generally our customers buy in the form of shock or tabs. These are tough times but you still swim safely if you take care of your pool water chemistry!
