Distribution and balance of volatile halogenated hydro carbons in the water and air of covered swimming pools using chlorine for water disinfection


Distribution and balance of volatile halogenated hydro carbons in the water and air of covered swimming pools using chlorine for water disinfection

A survey of the chlorination practice of swimming-pool waters was presented taking the case of covered pools in Bremen [West Germany]. Chlorination of water may result in specific health hazards by various halogenated chemicals. Trihalomethanes (THM), were determined in water and air samples. One organic precursor of the synthesis of THM in swimming pools was identified. An estimate of average and maximum burden of the user/swimmer was given. Short and long range alternative measures were proposed to diminish health hazards. Application of Cl2 for disinfection should be minimized.
