Parasites in Your Pool?

Joey’s kids had always wanted a pool, they said so each time they drove past one on the way to school. So, when he received a large bonus on his paycheck, he decided to put the money towards installing one behind his home as an early birthday gift for both of them. It took a few days to finish, but everyone loved using it. Even the dog would jump in every now and then. Things were great, until both of his children started suffering from painful upset stomachs for days on end. He took them both to the hospital and learned they had been infected with the parasite, Giardia intestinalis.

Joey was told how they may have been exposed to it by ingesting infested water, but the only outside source of water they had been near lately had been the new pool. After sending a sample of pool water to Nova Biologicals for testing, he received the results which confirmed that the pool water was full of the parasite. Following the advice of the scientists at Nova, he went out and bought a special type of pool cleaner in order to deal with the parasite. Thanks to Nova Biologicals, he and his family were back to enjoying their pool without having to worry about anymore microscopic parasites.
