Microbial Recreational Water Testing
Recreational water, such as pools and water parks, can be a breeding ground for harmful microorganisms if not properly maintained. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all public pools and water parks be regularly tested for bacteria such as E. coli and Legionella.
Proper chlorine and pH levels must be maintained to kill off these microorganisms and prevent outbreaks of illness. The CDC also recommends that pool operators conduct routine testing for other contaminants such as Crypto (cryptosporidium) and Giardia.
