Why Cryptosporidium is Responsible for Over 80% of Swimming Pool Illness Outbreaks, and What Can Be Done About It
The majority of swimming pool illness outbreaks in the US with symptoms ranging from diarrhea to death are caused by Cryptosporidium, a microscopic parasite.
“Unlike the other waterborne pathogens, Crypto is chlorine-resistant. This unique characteristic explains why it is the most common cause of illness in pool swimmers. Most waterborne pathogens are destroyed by chlorine, and many pools are adequately chlorinated to achieve that level of protection.”
Water maintenance is critical to your facilities success.
Pools, spas, and park features are key differentiators for today’s properties. Water that is cared for leads to:
- Higher guest satisfaction
- Improved occupancy
- Increased revenues
Managing water comes with significant costs, management challenges and litigation risks. To make it more difficult, procedures, equipment, and regulations are constantly changing.
