Low Chlorine Levels Linked to Infection Outbreaks

by on Aug.31, 2012, under Health

A recent report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides a compelling reason to monitor your pool’s and hot tub’s chlorine levels: to prevent infection outbreaks.

The December 8th issue of the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report states that outbreaks of rashes and ear infections occurred in Colorado and Maine after chlorine levels in hotel pools and hot tubs fell below state-required levels. The outbreaks affected approximately 24 people, and both were caused by the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

To reduce the risk of outbreaks in your pool and hot tub, the CDC advises closely monitoring your disinfectant levels, especially when your facilities are crowded. “These outbreaks happen on a regular basis, and they’re easily prevented,” said the CDC’s Michael Beach. CDC experts also point out that higher temperatures cause chlorine levels to dissipate, so pay particular attention to your hot tub levels.
