While we are aware of Harris County’s ‘Stay Home Work Safe’ order that goes into effect midnight tonight to April 3rd, businesses providing home maintenance and other services are exempt from the order. As such, Texas Pools will continue to maintain our client’s pools, spas, and fountains.
The maintenance of properly sanitized swimming pools and other artificial bodies of water is necessary to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases and help maintain community health.
Without proper pool maintenance (which includes circulation and treatment of water) various germs — like e. coli — can grow. It can also create a breeding ground for mosquitoes, other pests and the diseases they may carry. This presents a risk not only to bathers but to the entire community at large.
According to the CDC, COVID-19 cannot survive in properly treated pool and hot tub water.
