Q: Can I get flu, especially Swine Flu or H1N1, from swimming pools?
A: According to CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention), there has never been a documented case of influenza virus infection associated with water exposure. Recent studies have demonstrated that free chlorine levels recommended by CDC (1~3 ppm for pools) are adequate to disinfect H5N1 (Bird Flu) virus. It is likely that other influenza viruses such as the H1N1 virus (swine flu) would also be similarly disinfected by chlorine. Calphin indoor pools maintain at a chlorine level of 2 ppm, monitored and controlled 24x7 by our computerized checmical controllers.

Q: How does Calphin respond to the Declaration of H1N1 Emergency in the United States?
A: Health experts have stressed that H1N1 is a new type of flu virus, not a cause for panic. Calphin will continue our swim lessons and fitness programs with the following precautions against H1N1 and other severe flu during the flu seasons:
