Swimming pool water hygiene

Swimming pools offer sports and relaxation

When visiting a public swimming pool, guests expect relaxation and sports facilities. To attract customers, modern pools advertise an extensive selection of attractions: giant slides, hot spa baths, water fountains, massage jets, salt water pools, saunas and other facilities which mark current trends. However, these advantages carry a disadvantage. Requirements in relation to water processing and the need for comprehensive and individual assessments are significantly increased.

Our service portfolio

  • The Ruhr District Institute of Hygiene currently supervises more than 700 swimming pools and carries out frequent water quality monitoring. Furthermore, we are able to offer extensive experience derived from operating our test swimming pool. We use our experience to support our customers in all areas of pool water hygiene and processing.
  • We work on behalf of pool operators, supervisory authorities as well as processing plants and companies. Our operations range from microbiological, chemical and physical examinations to comprehensive assessment of results obtained.
