Sanitize & Protect Aquatic & Recreational Spaces


With the COVID-19 epidemic creating uncertainty and varying response from one locality to another, ensuring the safety of visitors to aquatic and recreational venues has never been more important. In addition to encouraging social distancing for unrelated groups, providing sanitized and clean spaces for aquatics and recreation will help reassure visitors that you make their health a priority.

Q: How can we sanitize our aquatic and recreation facilities to keep guests safe?

A: Antimicrobial solutions designed specifically for recreation and aquatic facilities are now available. Industry-leading biochemists have partnered with recreation specialists to create effective, safe and affordable solutions to deal with potential contamination.

These solutions are able to clean, sanitize and inhibit the growth of microorganisms through a proprietary process that provides persistent and continuous antimicrobial protection against harmful and dangerous pathogens, including viruses, bacteria, mold, yeast, mildew and a broad spectrum of other microorganisms.

Q: How does it work?

A: You can easily apply the active agent through a variety of sprayer options. The active agent attaches permanently to the surface, and then the microorganisms that contact the surface are destroyed. This inhibits further growth of the microorganism and ensures a clean and safe surface.

Q: What else should we consider?

A: First, look for solutions that are designed for spaces similar to yours—solutions specifically geared toward recreational and aquatic facilities.

Also, check to be sure the solution is EPA-registered and verified to provide long-term protection (up to 60 days) from problematic bacteria, fungi, algae, protozoa, viruses and other microorganisms.

A variety of solutions are available in ready-to-use or dilution options. You'll save time and money by reducing the need for frequent cleaning.
