Introduction
Swimming is an activity that allows
individuals to maintain a good
physical
health
and
fitness. The swimmer should always be aware of the
fact
that
the
managers of the
swimming
pool
keep
the
quality of the
water to ensure
that
the
pool is clean
.The are many
simple
things
that
we as individuals can do to ensure
the
pools are always
clean. Good
hygiene
and
proper
healthy
swimming
behavior will greatly
help in the
prevention of contamination
and
prevention of swimming
pool
related
sickness
(Richer:, 2003).Individual
hygiene
refers to both
risk
and
the
protective
factors against illness. Individuals that have
poor
hygienic
conditions are likely to contract
infections as compared to individuals
who
practice
hygienic
behaviors. Unhygienic
individuals are more
vulnerable to pathogens. About the
aquatic
conditions, it is to do with the
cleanliness of individuals before entering to a swimming
pool
together with the
quality of water in the
pool. It
all
depicts
the
character of individuals before getting to the
swimming
pool that includes
whether there was pre-existing sickness
(Kurutz, 2009).When
people with poor
hygienic
conditions
get into the
swimming
pool, they will contaminate
the
it with pathogens and
this can be passed on to other swimmers, this can easily
cause
possible
outbreak of diseases, for
example cryptosporidium. A
low disinfectant level comes
due to poor
maintenance of the
swimming
pool
that
results in the
spread of germs that can cause
skin
diseases
and
other
infections
such
as diarrhoea (Banerjee, 2010).Other
conditions
such as the
correct dosage of chemicals
and
higher bather loads can create
dangerous
swimming
environment. Too
many
chemicals can cause respiratory diseases
and
skin
irritations. In the
other
side, too
small
chemicals
mean
that
the bacteria and
other pathogens are not removed
and
hence
dangerous. Individuals
suffering from diseases
such as diarrhea should always be advised to stay
away from pools; this is due to the
high
risks of faecal leakage that can come up leading
contamination. Crypto has been
known to be a little
bit resistible to chlorine; hence
it is batter to prevent
(Kurutz, 2009).It
is recommended
that
parents with little
children should learn to avoid
changing
children’s nappies near pools since they can easily
contaminate
the
water, this leads to serious problems since the bacteria cannot be killed
quickly(Banerjee, 2010).
