Can I experiment with chemicals until I get the water quality I want?

       No, NEVER experiment! Improper measuring and mixing of chemicals – whether diluted or concentrated – can create both unwanted reactions and potential health hazards. Improperly handling pool chemicals can make people very sick, so it isn’t something you want to test! Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions with special attention to safety gear, clean up and storage.
      Please call Royal Pool Management at (941) 915-3202 and we will make sure your pool is healthy and swim ready!

What is RWI?

RWI stands for recreational water illnesses that are caused by bacteria found in water, such as pools and spas. RWI usually involves diarrhea-type illnesses, but also can cause skin rash and ear, eye or respiratory infections. Pool and spa water requires proper chemical treatment to lessen the incidence of RWI. Also, people should avoid swallowing pool water and not swim while sick. 

In the past twenty years RWI outbreaks have increased substantially. Remember, maintain chlorine levels is key to maintain a healthy pool.
