Swimming and bathing water

According to the Infection Protection Law, swimming and bathing water, in addition to drinking water, may not pose a risk to human health. To avoid health risks, DIN 19643-1 establishes requirements for the hygienic use of swimming and bathing water. This regulation sets forth different testing obligations for public facilities operators.
