Swimming pools provide a refreshing way to beat the summer heat and stay active, but they can also pose a significant health risk if not properly maintained. Pool water balance and pool pH control is extremely important as waterborne pathogens such as bacteria and viruses can quickly proliferate in pool water, putting swimmers at risk of developing infections or illnesses.
One of the most common disinfectants used in pool water treatment is chlorine. This chemical compound serves to eliminate harmful pathogens and maintain pool water balance. When added to pool water, chlorine works to remove bacteria, viruses, and fungi that can cause illnesses like gastroenteritis, swimmer’s ear, and skin infections. These pathogens enter the pool through swimmers’ fecal matter, sweat, urine, and infected wounds or abrasions, and can pose a significant risk to human health if not managed and eradicated. Chlorinated pool water plays a critical role in providing a safe and healthy swimming environment by keeping these pathogens at bay.
However, while chlorine has its benefits, there are also numerous risks associated with chlorine because it is a chemical that can cause dry hair and skin, red/burning eyes, and even lung issues. Therefore, adding more chlorine is not the answer to maintaining pool water balance and achieving a healthy pool.
