Let’s look at COVID-19 and your pool and hot tub with tips for care.


CDC Recommendations

According to the CDC*, COVID-19 cannot survive in properly treated pool and hot tub water. In addition, the World Health Organization states that controlling water quality is necessary to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases.

During this crisis it is important that pool and hot tub owners properly maintain their pools and spas.

The Importance of Pool & Spa Professional Maintenance

We can help you keep your pool and spa water clean and ready to swim and soak. The CDC says:

  • The maintenance of properly sanitized swimming pools and other artificial bodies of water is necessary to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases and help maintain community health.
  • Without proper pool maintenance (which includes circulation and treatment of water) various germs which are present in feces —like e. coli — can grow. It can also create a breeding ground for mosquitoes, other pests and the diseases they may carry. This presents a risk not only to bathers but to the entire community at large.
  • As children and families across the country are being asked to reduce outside contact or even shelter at home, and gyms and other public facilities are closing, the backyard pool, spa or hot tub provides a fun way for families to focus on their health and well-being. These pools and hot tubs should be properly maintained by a service professional to ensure proper sanitation measures are taking place.
  • Pool maintenance should be performed by an industry professional. In this case, it’s your trusted pros at Fiesta!
