Can the Covid-19 Virus Spread Through Pools, Hot Tubs or Spa?

Apr 24, 2020

There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools, hot tubs or spas, or water playgrounds. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools, hot tubs or spas, and water playgrounds should inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.

While there is ongoing community spread of COVID-19, there should be appropriate care taken both in and outside the pool, to protect yourself and others. Owners and operators of community pools, hot tubs, or spas should follow the interim guidance for businesses and employers to plan and respond to COVID-19.

Awesome experience. Our pool designer, Janine Wilson was excellent. She thought of details and utility issues that other pool companies we interviewed did not mention. Very timely finish. Our yard was kept clean and safe. Landscaping replaced too. Stayed in our budget. Great pool school after pool was completed.

Jonathan Gill did a terrific job during the sales process. He was informative and gave us multiple options to choose from. The delivery of our spa went perfectly. The crew allowed me to ask as many questions as I needed to feel comfortable with the spa’s operation. Another member of your company that was very helpful was Wes. He answered all the questions I had regarding a new Intelliflo pump ( we purchase one). Thank you again for the great service.
