If you enjoy swimming especially in commercial swimming pools, water quality should be a concern of yours. There has been a lot of talk about waterborne diseases and how they are increasing. As a bather in a swimming pool, you need to know what they are, how you can come in contact with them and what the symptoms are too. Just because a swimming pool is blue and clear doesn’t mean it’s safe to swim in. Waterborne diseases are usually a bigger problem with commercial swimming pools but that doesn’t mean your residential pool can’t contain one. At Pool Services Technologies, our goal is to make sure the clarity of your water is best! We are also concerned with the quality too and so should you. We want to educate you on the various waterborne diseases and how you can remove them if necessary.

When it comes to swimming pools, the following are some of the most common waterborne diseases:

  • Campylobacteriosis, which is a bacterium with symptoms of diarrhea, abdominal pain, and fever.
  • Cholera, which is a bacterium with symptoms of muscle cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea.
  • Cryptosporidium, which is a bacterium with symptoms of diarrhea, stomach cramps, upset stomach and slight fever. This is by far the most common waterborne disease and the one you should be most concerned about!
  • Typhoid fever, which is a bacterium with symptoms of fever, headache, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite and an abdominal rash.

As stated above, Cryptosporidium is by far the most common waterborne disease and one that everyone should be concerned about but wouldn’t it be great to swim in a pool and know that you are swimming in the best quality of water? With Pool Services Technologies, this is possible and using our unique The Puripool Process that can give you drinking quality water in your pool. Yes, that’s right you can swim in drinking quality water! Our Reverse Osmosis (RO) Mobile Filtration Trailer comes to your residential or commercial swimming pool and recycles the water on site. The process will lower Calcium Hardness (CH), Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Cyanuric Acid (CYA), salts, phosphates, and waterborne diseases without draining the swimming pool. In fact, we will conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool which is great for water conservation.  Since we use RO filtration, as a swimmer you will now have the opportunity to swim in drinking quality water. You will notice a difference in the feel of the water as well as how it looks. Since RO filtration will remove waterborne diseases, you can rest assured that getting out of the pool with dry, itchy skin or red eyes will be a thing of the past. The water will also be lower in CH and TDS which will prevent scaling on the water tile line, the interior finish, filtration equipment, spillways, and decorative water features. This process will prolong the lifespan of your investment and as a parent or swimmer, you will feel the difference in the water. Please keep in mind this water is much better than tap and there’s no downtime during the process. If you have a swimming pool and would like to experience clean pool water and drinking quality water in your pool, contact us today!

On a side note, if you plan on swimming in a commercial property we recommend showering before and don’t swim if you’re feeling ill. If you should have any questions on how this service works, let us know!
