THE IMPORTANCE OF SHOWERING.
As you may be aware there have been incidents at a number of training sessions where swimmers have started to cough which in some cases has resulted in a shortening/modification of the sessions. Without going into the intricacies of pool maintenance and the structure of the dosing systems there are a number of factors that cause imbalances in the chemical conditioning of the pool but a contributor factor to this can be addressed by asking all our swimmers to shower before entering the pool. By doing this we can contribute to the reduction of chemicals i.e. Deodorants, conditioners, etc being introduced that then have to be dealt with by the pool management system. Carrying out this simple action will help to relieve the stress on the pool dosing systems that may reduce the risk of repeated incidents. Thank you for your assistance..
