Abstract

An investigation of maintenance, usage, and coliform status of water in 104 domestic swimming pools in 13 Brisbane suburbs was made in January, 1978. The results showed that domestic pools are often imperfectly serviced, and are potential infection sources. The need for health education of pool owners, and for more reliable methods of pool sanitization is emphasized.
