If you’ve been watching the news lately, you might have seen the multiple outbreaks of illnesses that have happened to people while swimming. From flesh-eating bacteria to the amoeba Naegleria fowleri, trouble can be lurking in lakes, rivers, oceans, and even water parks that are not sanitized properly.
A Constant Concern
There are many people who go to the beach, the lake, or even the local pool who get sick each year. They typically go unreported and most sickness range from simple respiratory problems to cases of gastrointestinal trouble. But some result in severe cases of hospitalization, loss of limbs, and loss of life.
Going swimming locally requires a bit of prevention and protection. To lessen your risk of getting sick, remember to:
- Keep water out of your mouth and from going up your nose.
- Shower before and after swimming
- Don’t swim with an open wound or a cut
- See a doctor if you feel sick or notice a red spot or bump on your body
If you love to swim and have water fun, a swim spa might just be the answer to your problems. A swim spa is a great way to burn calories, train for an event, or just hang out with your family and friends. Installed in your backyard, on your deck, in your garage, or even in the basement, a swim spa can give you just as much fun, exercise, and adventure as a local lake or park, with less worry about bacteria and viruses that others can bring in. You won’t wonder about what’s in the water when you’re the one in control of the sanitation and chlorination.
Cleaner With A Cover
Remember to keep your swim spa covered to keep unwanted debris and dirt out of your water. By protecting it with a cover, you’ll ensure that the water is even safer that other units that have no cover and are constantly exposed to the elements.
And don’t just trust any cover to protect your spa; End 2 End is making waves in the cover industry as one of the best swim spa covers you can buy.
