Recreational Water Illnesses are a big threat...In 2005 a spray park in Seneca Falls, New York had an outbreak of cryptosporidium where over 3000 people contracted the the illness. Recreational Water Illnesses (RWI's) are a big threat to your summer fun.
Even with appropriate levels of disinfectants like chlorine and bromine, some viruses, bacteria and protozoa can live in your water, putting your patrons at risk for gastrointestinal illness. Protecting your swimmers requires more than just chemical balance. Proactive measures like rest periods and swim diaper protocol may help to reduce the risk.
