In this article, we look at personal hygiene for kids at the pool. Be sure and download the Healthy Swimming Education & Activity Book  to teach kids the basics of swimmer hygiene.

Personal Hygiene for Swimmers

While pools that are taken care of well are clean, clear and sanitized, swimmers must still take care before swimming.

Swimmers should shower (rinse off) before swimming, and no one should ever potty in the pool.

Substances like perspiration, make-up, body oil, lotions, urine and fecal matter react with the chlorine in your pool. The results?

  • You need to add more disinfectant to destroy bacteria
  • Byproducts occur making the swimming experience less than enjoyable

Persona hygiene also means that swimmers should never, ever, under any circumstances, swim when they have diarrhea. If they do, and any swimmers swallow contaminated water, they can get sick with the chlorine-resistant waterborne parasite Cryptosporidium (crypto).

Final Thoughts

We welcome your questions about pool hygiene, and we offer a wide range of the best pool and spa chemicals on the market.

Be sure and download the great activity book for your young swimmers.

We bet you’ve heard the saying, “You can’t have your cake and eat it too.”
