Swimming Pool Dreaming
Many of us dream of owning a swimming pool, however, dreams about swimming pools (or any pool of water) may symbolize your subconscious thoughts or deeply rooted emotions. Pool dreams suggest that you are trying to understand and know yourself better. The pool is a commonly reported dream that often occurs when you are worried about a certain stage in life or encountering emotional obstacles.
If the water in the swimming pool is clear in the dream, this means good health and positive outcomes. During nightmares, the water in the pool is usually dirty and represents an omen for change and the potential dramas this may involve.
Swimming Pool Reality
The reality of actually owning a swimming pool comes with responsibilities such as maintaining healthy water quality.
Dirty swimming pool water presents a serious health hazard. Recreational Water Infections (RWIs) come in a wide variety including gastrointestinal, skin, ear, respiratory, eye, neurologic and wound infections.
The basic pathogens that are commonly found in swimming pools are:
- bacteria, such as E. coli, shigella (which causes dysentery), campylobacter and salmonella. ..
- protozoa, such as cryptosporidium and giardia, also known for its severe gastrointestinal effects.
The most commonly reported RWI is diarrhea caused by Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Shigella, norovirus or E. coli O157:H7
Cryptosporidium is highly chlorine resistant and can survive in pool water for days. Another gut bug, E.coli, is known to cause outbreaks of stomach illness but is more sensitive to chlorine and can usually be kept in check with careful pool maintenance.
The healthy ‘dream’ of owning a swimming pool can turn into a ‘real’ nightmare if water quality is not maintained at the highest standards.
Swimming Pool Maintenance
A swimming pool needs maintenance to keep the water quality safe for swimming and to prevent your pool equipment from breaking down.
The importance of swimming pool maintenance cannot be underestimated considering the health risks invited by swimming in dirty pool water. While avoiding regular pool maintenance by professional experts may save you money in the short term, it could cost you dearly in the long run in relation to equipment breakdowns, poor water quality and the costs to your health and that of family and friends.
