Aqua Assist Covid 19 Statement

Covid 19 Statement

In accordance with the national response to contain COVID19, Aqua Assist Pool Services has developed the following procedure to mitigate the risk of transmission or infection of our staff and customers:

  • We will contact customers the day before undertaking work on their premises to advise an estimate of our arrival
  • We will no longer be door knocking on arrival but will call out that we are on the premises
  • We will be strictly observing social distancing rules whilst on the premises
  • Whilst on the premises, staff will be using single use gloves

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),  there is no evidence the virus can survive in a properly chlorinated and filtered pool. “There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs,” reads a statement on CDC’s site. “Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.”

Sanitation levels above 2 parts per million (ppm) of chlorine are imperative at this time so you may find your pump running longer than normal. It is also very important for the filtration equipment to be maintained and working properly.
