Pool Water & COVID-19
Dear pool owners,
Like you, we have been closely monitoring developments related to the COVID-19
pandemic, and have received questions regarding whether the virus can be
transmitted via pool and/or spa water.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC, March 10, 2020), there is no
evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot
tubs. Specifically, they state that "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."
If you have any questions about how to properly operate and maintain your pool, as
well as manage its water chemistry, we strongly encourage you to reach out to a
local pool professional. If you do not already have one, you can use the locator here to help you find a professional in your area.
