For most of us throughout the country, signs of Spring are making an appearance, and swimming pool season is right around the corner. Amidst the global Pandemic of Covid-19, homeowners and pool owners alike are concerned for the health of their families and loved ones. Luckily for pool owners, quarantining at home seems much more tolerable with a swimming pool in your backyard.
The concern of Covid-19 spreading remains top of mind for most. At this point we’ve heard about how rapidly the virus can spread with human contact, so what does this mean for transmission via pools and hot tubs?
Thankfully, according to the CDC, there is no evidence that Covid-19 is transmitted through, or by, water. Hence, along with our water supply, properly balanced and sanitized swimming pools that are treated with chlorine or bromine coupled with EZPool provide a safe swimming experience for quarantined families.
Many studies have shown that Vitamin D is a leading defense mechanism in your body’s fight against respiratory infections, and the sun provides the most fun way to absorb that incredibly important vitamin. Therefore, while combining fun in the sun with social distancing- you can create safe and enjoyable memories in your properly maintained pool.
APi Water recommends that you abide by the safe social distances set forth by the CDC, and that you limit the number of total attendees to their current recommendations. We also recommend that you make every effort to safely enjoy your pool to the fullest extent possible.
Here’s to ringing in a safe and healthy summer together!
