Keeping your Swimming Pool Hygienic

How to Keep Your Swimming Pool Hygienic Through Summer

As parents, it is tough enough keeping your kids healthy with all the germs they come into contact with throughout their day. From flu infections they pick up at school, to all the other public places they visit during the week, it is not easy to keep germs at bay. This is why you want to make sure that your swimming pool is also not a breeding ground for germs.

Luckily, it does not need to be. With some proper swimming pool hygiene and healthy habits, you can keep your pool a healthy and clear escape for your family. After all, a swimming pool is supposed to be a benefit, and not a risk for your family. You do not necessarily need to drown your pool in chemicals either in order to keep it hygienic throughout the summer months. There are a few other ways you can contribute to keeping your pool healthy too.

Avoid These Common Health Problems Associated with a Poorly Hygienic Pool

In case you were not convinced about the importance of keeping your pool clean and hygienic, consider the following. Germs that can accumulate in swimming pools can cause ear, eye, skin, and chest infections, as well as gastroenteritis.

The pathogens that can make their way into your swimming pool might be introduced to the water in numerous ways. However, one of the most common ways they enter the water and contaminate your pool is through other swimmers. This might happen when the water mixes with someone’s perspiration, or if someone urinates in the water. Ointments, sunscreen, lotions, and other chemicals people might be wearing can also compromise PH and chlorine levels.

This, unfortunately, creates a friendly environment for disease-causing pathogens. So, what can you do about it? To keep your family safe from these problems, adopt healthy swimming hygiene habits. These habits include:

  1. Showering prior to entering the pool.
  2. Not getting into the water if you have recently suffered from gastrointestinal problems.
  3. Exiting the swimming pool for any restroom requirements.
  4. Giving children frequent restroom breaks.
  5. Not swimming when you have an open wound, or when sick.
  6. Not swallowing pool water. It is always best to keep it out of your mouth completely.

These are only a few ways you can keep your family safer while using and enjoying the swimming pool. Adopt these healthy hygiene habits to make your pool a healthier and happy place throughout the hot summer months, and look forward to keeping your family smiling.
