Public Swimming Pools Can Be Deadly for Those with Autoimmune Diseases

Learn why a public pool may not be a safe place for those with autoimmune diseases.


What is in the public-pool water?


Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which causes rashes and infections, was found in 59 percent of the samples, while, Cryptosporidium and Giardia -- both parasites -- were detected in roughly 2 percent. Even the small percentage of cryptosporidium present is frightening, as it is particularly infectious and nearly impossible to kill with chlorine. For those of us with a compromised immune system, this could be deadly.

Doesn't chlorine kill all those germs?


Should those with compromised immune systems avoid public pools?

For those with autoimmune diseases, it is always best to be cautious. Beyond that, we need to be courteous as well. This means we should not become part of the problem, by showering with soap before entering a pool. Never swim if stricken with diarrhea and always wash hands thoroughly after handling a baby's diaper. Obvious, but necessary to mention, do not pee or swallow pool water.

Scrutinize the water before jumping in. If the water smells or is cloudy, stay dry. Strong odors are typically the result of bodily fluids mixing with chlorine--nasty. The same is true with the cloudy pool. The water should be clear to the bottom of the pool. Finally, research the ranking of your public pool and test the water. The Water Quality and Health Council provide an interactive map for comparing pools all over the US. It even offers free test strips for testing water quality.
