Is your pool water safe?

24 March 2020

Chlorine is a chemical that authorities are typically using to sanitise in order to kill the COVID-19 virus in effected areas (it's bleach, basically!).  Effectively, the sanitiser in your pool (produced by your saltwater chlorinator) is the same thing.  

The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention states, "There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools...Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine) of pools...should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19."

As usual, we recommend to keep your chlorine level at 3 to 5 parts per million, and make sure the water is balanced with a pH of 7.4 to 7.6, and Total Alkalinity within the range 100 to 150, so that the chlorine is most effective.

And then jump in the pool to take your mind off the craziness!
