Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 (also referred to as the coronavirus) many of our customers have been asking about the possible transmission of the disease through the use of their inground pool. Here is some information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (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.”
As with any situation, the best way to ensure healthy and safe use of your pool is through proper service and maintenance. Please follow all other guidelines from officials and health experts to keep you and your family safe and to prevent the transmission of COVID-19.
