Can the COVID-19 virus be spread through pools and hot tubs?in Informational
The easy spread of Convid-19 has many people worried. They want to know if it can be spread through pools and hot tubs. Here we provide an answer, and a solution.
Can the COVID-19 virus be spread through pools and hot tubs?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated their information on this topic, stating: “There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools, hot tubs or spas, or water playgrounds. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools, hot tubs or spas, and water playgrounds should inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.”
With that great news, it highlights the importance of knowing how to care for and maintain your pool or hot tub. At the Art Knapp Surrey Outdoor Living Centre, we take the mystery (and the hassle) out of achieving and maintaining healthy environments in both, by offering hot tub water testing and BioGuard pool water care.
We start with a free water analysis. Just bring in a sample for us to test and we’ll walk you through the next steps you have to take. We’ll recommend the best system for your specific situation, explain why they’re needed, then tell you how to apply them. You will gain a clear picture of the condition of your water, then we will put together a water care plan utilizing effective and easy to use BioGuard water care products, including sanitizers. By continually killing bacteria, a sanitizer provides swimmers protection from disease-causing organisms. This important role makes the sanitizer the most critical product in pool care. BioGuard products include Power Chlor, Sleeved Brominating Refill Pucks, and Brominating Tablets.
