Counting Down to Pool Season
It may not feel like it in some areas of the country yet (only 49˚F here in Chicago as I write this!), but the summer season is just around the corner – and that means so is pool season.
This week, NSF Intl. reminded us of some important pool safety tips, ranging from storing chemicals properly to always supervising children around pools.
Another key to pool safety is proper water disinfection. Without it, swimmers could be subject to an array of waterborne illnesses – including Cryptosporidium, cases of which have been increasing in recent years, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.
