If you have a swimming pool or hot tub or you’re considering purchasing one or a home that has one already installed you may be concerned if the chemicals used to clean the pool are harmful to swimmers or children. Chlorine is the most typical chemical used to clean pools and kill harmful bacteria. It’s also commonly used in drinking water but a byproduct such as HAA can occur when chlorine reacts with impurities in the water. The shallower the pool is, the more susceptible swimmers are to this exposure since the primary means of injecting this is through inhaling, not necessarily absorbed through the skin.
Most of us know the chlorine disinfects pool water in general but well-managed pools should have concentrations that are less than what is found in drinking water. Any risk in a properly maintained pool is said to be very small according to WebMD. It’s always best not to ingest pool water and keep your mouth closed while swimming but the main focus is to keep a well maintained pool or hot tub.

Not only do we test and adjust the chemical levels for the proper requirements, but we clean the pool tile, interior walls, pump baskets, and inspect all the equipment for any problems or necessary repairs.
