Distributed water in swimming pools: minimising health risks

Project Number # 4518-15

Understanding the chemistry of swimming pool water quality to minimise chemical health risks

Project Leader:  Rhys Carter

Although some studies have investigated swimming pool chemical water quality, there are still knowledge gaps. This project aims to report on the chemical water quality of public swimming pools in Australia, which will provide guidance to health regulation bodies on infection and management practices designed for improvement in the chemical water quality of swimming pools, as well as potentially for reduction in any public health risk.
