Reminder: Shower Before Using Aquatic Center

"Please shower with soap before entering pools."

 

We have all heard this many times but have you ever considered why this is so important?

 

It is imperative that all pool patrons shower with soap thoroughly before entering the pools. We need the pool’s chlorine to be available for fighting unpredictable contaminants. By removing dirt and excess oils/body fluids before entering the pool you leave the chlorine free to fight significant contaminants when the need arises.

 

Pool regulatory agencies are monitoring area pools (including ours) for satisfactory safety. Please help us out by showering with soap before entering the pools. We appreciate your help in keeping aquatic activities fun and healthy for all!
