Required Toddler Swimwear
It is very important that toddlers wear swim diapers or rubber pants over diapers. The outbreak of Cryptosporidium that closed down many city pools last summer was caused by toddlers not wearing swim diapers. Diarrhea or feces in the water spread this potentially serious infectious disease. Chlorine is ineffective against the fungus; the pool must be shut down for 24 to 48 hours while the water is shocked. The simple act of wearing swim diapers will help ensure we have healthy water for swimming.
