Hydrotherapy pool in Forres temporarily closed
News has just been released about the closure of the Hydrotherapy pool in Forres. The local council’s environmental health department made the decision to issue the closure notice after routine tests revealed high levels of bacteria in the water. Because hydrotherapy pools are used for health and recuperation, following illnesses or injuries, the water temperature is kept a little higher than that of ordinary swimming pools.
Warm water can breed bacteria
The problem is that the warmer the water gets, the more conducive it becomes to allowing bacteria to breed, and it looks as if in this case the purification equipment may be at fault. The pool was opened just three years ago and is considered a great boon by local residents, so they will be hoping that the problem gets fixed, and that the pool is able to reopen again soon.
Recreational Water Illnesses – RWIs
Recreational Water Illnesses (RWIs) are caused by chemicals and bacteria in water that can lead to various conditions including gastrointestinal illness, and various ear, eye, and respiratory disorders.
Most common swimming pool related outbreaks of RWI often result in diarrhoeal illness brought about by such germs as: Crypto, Giaris, Shigella, Norovirus and E. coli. It’s therefore important to ensure that the correct levels of chlorine are always present. Having said that, Crypto bacteria can stay alive in swimming pool water for several days (even in the best maintained pools), and is currently the leading cause of most diarrhoeal outbreaks linked to swimming pools.
When it comes to hydrotherapy pools, some pool users may have compromised immune systems which could allow the bacteria to cause serious illness, which is why, when high levels of bacteria are discovered, prompt closure is the best way forward.
