Effective hydrotherapy pool maintenance
It’s vital to have a written schedule for testing and maintenance your hydrotherapy pool.
You will need to develop a routine for testing the pool water every day, and find an independent, accredited specialist such as Acorn Environment Services to perform the appropriate microbiology tests.
Your water testing and inspection policy should record what actions you take together with the standard of the water at the start of the day and the number of patients who are treated in the water during each session.
Patients and staff shouldn’t be in the water for more than an hour, and it’s usually best to split sessions into three blocks of 15 minutes each with a break between to reduce the risk of pool soiling.
Work out how and where you are going to store your sampling kits, to keep them in a good state. Always use equipment in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions, and train staff fully.
