Hydrotherapy pools, microbiological and chemical results

, : Hydrotherapy pools, microbiological and chemical results. Zentralblatt für Bakteriologie, Parasitenkunde, Infektionskrankheiten und Hygiene. Erste Abteilung Originale. Reihe B: Hygiene, Betriebshygiene, Praventive Medizin 169(3-4): 271-281

The results of microbiological and chemical examinations of water samples collected from hydrotherapy pools for non incontinent patients proved that the officially agreed parameters for the surveillance of public swimming pools (Osterr. Bäderhygiene-Gesetz and Verordnung) have to be extended to meet the requirements of epidemiology. Similarly the requirements for treatment and operating conditions of those waters should be more rigorous. Minimal requirements for the treatment of water in hydrotherapy pools are recommended. The results of the study indicated also that the microbicide action of chlorine (chlorine gas, hypochlorite solution) was superior to those of DIHALO (chlorine-bromine-hydantoine). Suggestions are made for proper handling of waters which would lose their therapeutical potencies by any kind of treatment.
