Know Your Pool Codes: The Standards of Water Quality

When it comes to your pool, having proper water quality is imperative.

When it comes to your pool, having proper water quality is imperative. In fact, the key to having the most effective and efficient standards of water quality is actually easier than you may think. Here are some of the best ways to examine your pool water and ensure it meets the quality standards needed for a healthy and safe pool for everyone to enjoy.

Understanding Water Quality Standards

Internationally, the World Health Organization (WHO) usually will make the standards needed for water quality in swimming pools — both commercial and residential. In fact, in the United States, it is the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) which is in charge of publishing the manual that lays out all the necessary standards for a pool’s water. This means every pool owner needs to be always aware of the proper standards necessary to ensure your pool’s water meets the standards and guidelines necessary for enjoyment. 

Different Types Of Pool Standards

One of the most important types of pool measures in place deals with public pools and another set deals with residential pools — those that are private and in peoples’ homes. In fact, the public pool standards are traditionally dictated by the states themselves. This means local regulations make the public pool standards. However, there is a key difference when it comes to private swimming pools. As a result, these private pool owners will usually have specific guidelines outlined for them rather than strict standards they need to meet. This makes it a little more relaxed for pool owners to ensure they have the right quality of water in their swimming pools. 

Bottom Line

At the end of the day, equipping your pool with the best quality water can be a game-changer for everyone involved. In fact, being mindful of the various standards and guidelines out there can help to ensure that the pool water reaches optimal quality and freshness. The reality is, having subpar water in your swimming pool can be dangerous and harmful — that is why there are various guidelines and standards out there to ensure the safety and wellbeing of you and your loved ones when you enjoy your swimming pool
