The safety of our employees, our customers, and our communities remains at the top of our operating priorities. As you know, this is a very fluid situation and we understand that business decisions must be based on each unique situation and information from local jurisdictions. However, at this time, the continued operations of our pool service/maintenance is essential to the health and well-being of our communities. Work necessary to the operations and maintenance of the 16 critical infrastructure sectors as identified by the National Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) includes residential and commercial construction. Summerhill Pools, Inc WILL remain open and continue to service our clients at this time.
According to the CDC, COVID-19 cannot survive in properly treated pool and hot tub water. In addition, the World Health Organization states that controlling water quality is necessary to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases.
During this crisis it is important that pools and spas be properly maintained because:
- 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 pathogens can grow, such as Pseudomonas, Cryptosporidium, E. Coli, Shigella, etc. 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.
- As Dallas County issued a “Shelter at home”, the backyard pool provides the ideal way for families to focus on their health and well-being. These pools should be properly maintained by a service professional to ensure proper sanitation measures are taking place.
As an essential business, we will be implementing screening precautions to protect our employees and all activity shall be performed in compliance with social distancing guidelines.
As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or to schedule a service. Please email email@example.com for any questions, or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule any additional service/maintenance.
