The bacteria E. coli is often associated with food poisoning, yet can also be transmitted to pools by feces as well. Likewise, trace amounts of the bacteria were found in an aquatic center in Webster Groves, Missouri forcing it to temporarily close for testing. If you suspect you have been infected by E. coli, symptoms may include:

  • bloody diarrhea

  • severe abdominal cramping

  • in severe cases-kidney failure known as hemolytic uremic syndrome or HUS can occur

To keep safe from infection and to stop the spread of E. coli never allow anyone to swim with diarrhea, never swallow pool water, shower with soap before swimming, and change diapers in the bathroom and not the pool deck.
