How to Avoid the Spread of Germs in Commercial Pools

Commercial Pool Cleaners have seen all kinds of swimming pools. They have everything from small pools behind hotels to multi-pool water parks. They have seen every shape of the pool, from Olympic-size rectangles to zero entry to artificial beaches. They have seen all kinds of special features, from hot tubs to waterfalls to swim-up bars.

How does one take care of all these different pools? Which Commercial Pool Cleaning Products do they need? Not every pool needs the same Swimming Pool Chemicals, and Pulsar® makes Swimming Pool Supplies to suit every pool. Despite their differences, all commercial pools have one thing in common; when they are not properly maintained, they can easily spread pathogens like E. coli and Cryptosporidium.

The Dangers of Pool-Borne Diseases

One of the reasons that so many people choose to visit water parks and artificial beaches is safety. Commercial Pool Cleaners can easily detect and prevent many of the diseases that people can get from swimming in lakes and rivers. For example, almost no one has ever gotten amoebic meningitis from a commercial pool. Some communicable diseases can spread in public pools, though. Children are especially vulnerable to these infections because they are more likely to swallow water. Many of these infections, like E. coli and cryptosporidiosis, mainly cause intestinal symptoms and can be treated with antibiotics. A particular danger of cryptosporidiosis is that treatment with antibiotics often kills enough of the germs to make symptoms disappear, but it is hard to eradicate the infection completely. Therefore, symptoms may return later and require further treatment.

How to Prevent Cryptosporidiosis

The Pulsar Crypto Remediation System is a filtration system that can reduce the number of Cryptosporidium pathogens in a pool by 95%. It greatly reduces the risk of cryptosporidiosis infections in swimmers at public pools.

Proper treatment of pools with chemicals and filtration helps a lot to reduce the spread of disease.
