Coronavirus Resources For Pools And Hot Tubs

Coronavirus Resources For Pools And Hot Tubs – Although the CDC and WHO have stated numerous times that you cannot get Coronavirus from the water in pools and hot tubs, it’s important to realize that this is dependent on the water being properly sanitized with chlorine or bromine.

This is the most quoted health statement from them; “There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of swimming pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of swimming pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19”.

So what exactly is the “proper operation, maintenance and disinfection” for swimming pool or hot tub water?

A lot of people have been emailing or calling us at PoolAndSpa.com to get advice as to the best practices for running a clean, sanitized pool or hot tub. So we decided to make this Coronavirus Resource page for pool and hot tub owners. This will help ensure that everyone has the right information in order to learn a bit more about water chemistry. Also you can learn about the proper chemicals to use to make your pool or hot tub perfectly safe this season.

Below you will find links to numerous How-To articles, videos and instructions that we have produced over the last 25 years. We have included very detailed water chemistry articles (if you are interested in that level of detail), along with very easy step by step DIY instructions. We have also included many direct links to the products discussed in those articles – so you can either order them online from us, or get similar products from your local pool store.

We want you to be able to enjoy your pool or hot tub this season. But we want you to be able to do so in a safe and disease-free environment. And remember you can always call us directly at 1-800-876-7647 if you have any specific questions regarding your own pool or hot tub. Or you may email us directly at customerservice@poolandspa.com.

We will be posting any future critical updates here on our PoolAndSpa.com News site, and on Facebook and Twitter.

Quick Tips For Recommended Water Sanitizer Chemical Levels In Swimming Pools And Hot Tubs During Coronavirus Outbreak

1- In publicly accessible (public) swimming pools, we would recommend running the chlorine levels at a slightly higher rate – between 3.0 ppm and 3.5 ppm – just to be safe. Shocking the swimming pool on a daily basis, or as necessary, is always a good idea, regardless of Coronavirus.

2- In private (homeowner) swimming pools, the standard recommended chlorine levels are still fine (1.5 ppm – 3.0 ppm). Shocking the swimming pool weekly, or after a party or gathering is always a good idea, regardless of Coronavirus.

3- In publicly accessible (public) hot tubs, we would recommend the use of chlorine, in addition to bromine, ozone or other hot tub sanitizers – just to be safe. Shocking the hot tub on a daily basis, or as necessary, is always a good idea, regardless of Coronavirus. We would recommend running the chlorine / bromine levels at a slightly higher rate – between 3.0 ppm and 3.5 ppm – just to be safe.

4- In private (homeowner) hot tubs, we would recommend the use of chlorine, in addition to bromine, ozone or other hot tub sanitizers – just to be safe. Shocking the hot tub before or after use, is a good idea. Especially if non-family/friends have used, or will be using, the hot tub. The standard recommended chlorine / bromine levels are still fine (1.5 ppm – 3.0 ppm).
