Don't get sick from your
swimming pool or hot tub / spa!
Proper chemical maintenance of
your swimming pool, hot tub or spa water is essential to keep your water
safe and to prevent the spread of disease. Swallowing, breathing
or having contact with contaminated swimming pool, hot tub or spa water
(also contaminated water in lakes, rivers and oceans) can make you sick.
Bacteria such as Crypto (Cryptosporidium), Giardia, Shigella, and E. Coli
can give symptoms such as skin, ear, respiratory, eye and wound infections.
Other bacteria that can multiply with improper maintenance are the
Legionella bacteria which causes the sometimes fatal Legionaires' Disease,
and Pseudomonas which can cause severe skin rashes, eye and ear infections,
Still other illnesses are caused by bacteria that are normally present in
water and soil.
When a swimming pool or hot tub is not properly maintained with a safe
level of chemicals, these bacteria (who enjoy the warmth and moisture of a
pool or spa) have the opportunity to increase to such high numbers that they
can make you sick.
www.aerias.org cites several such examples: In 1999 15 people
developed folliculitis after using a hotel pool and hottub in Colorado; in
2000 another outbreak of skin rashes and folliculitis among people who used
a hotel hot tub and swimming pool in Maine; a 10 year old girl got a skin
inflammation (atopic eczema) after sharing a hot tub with a friend whom had
fever blisters caused by herpes simplex; and in 1996 14 people were
hospitalized with legionnaires' disease at a whirlpool spa display at a home
improvement store in Virginia simply by walking by or spending time in the
area around it! These are all examples where the chemicals in the
water were not properly maintained, resulting in illness.
