How to Live in Summer

In Spain/Florida, the weather is already warm enough for pool activities, especially now, when children are out of school. The good news is that there is no evidence that the 2019 Coronavirus Disease, COVID-19, can be spread among humans through the use of swimming pools, according to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

There is something that we must apply especially with this situation: Proper maintenance, operation and disinfection (example: with chlorine and bromine) of the pools.

However, both adults and children in private or public gatherings at swimming pools should maintain "social distancing" practices, staying away in particular from persons exhibiting COVID 19-like symptoms.

This unexpected situation for us gives us a new perspective on how to use the pool so that it continues to be a safe and fun space. Now more than ever we must ensure that children are well protected when they are near the water and maintain the balance of chemicals to kill germs and prevent them from spreading.

Be careful, there are some harmful chemicals called chloramines, which can redden and burn the eyes, irritate the skin and cause rashes and respiratory problems. These chloramines are different from the type of chloramine that is sometimes used to disinfect our drinking water.

With Pool Concept we can avoid the degradation of the liquid because we isolate the water from the sunlight which dissipates the effect of the chlorine and we also keep the temperature constant which maintains the concentration of the chlorine.

Regarding the protection of children, it is important to provide locking or isolation mechanisms for children when adult supervision is not possible, so Pool Concept covers are a great solution to conveniently ensure the safety of children.

 

Tips for healthy swimming

Here are some tips from the CDC regarding swimming pools:

Do your own mini inspection. Use test strips to check sanitizer (chlorine or bromine) and pH levels before entering the water. Most department stores, hardware stores and pool supply stores sell test strips.

Remember that with Pool Concept covers we can avoid the degradation of the liquid because we isolate the water from the sunlight that dissipates the effect of chlorine and also keep the temperature constant which maintains the concentration of chlorine.

Shower before entering the water. Rinsing in the shower for just one minute helps get rid of most of the debris that may be present on swimmers' bodies.

Keep unknowing children away from pools or simply close the pool with Pool Concept covers completely or to a safe depth to prevent any mishaps.

Close the Pool Concept cover at the end of the day to ensure that the water remains balanced of chemicals and falling branches leaves or dust from outside.
