Does your Pool Water Look Clean?

Going for a swim? It turns out that people aren’t the only ones who find water inviting when the Durban temperatures soar.

Microbes, like bacteria that live on our skin and in our noses, get into the pool whenever we swim. Not all of them make us sick, and chlorine can kill a lot of them, but sometimes it takes days for that to happen.

If your pool stinks of chlorine, that’s not a sign that it’s clean. In fact, the stronger the odor, the harder the chlorine is working to kill urine, sweat, dirt, feaces and other things that swimmers bring to your pool.

Bring a sample of your pool water to BLUPOOL for an analysis. We'll kill dem bugs!
