Many Municipalities Poorly Supervise Public Swimming Pools

According to RTL News, more than half of Dutch municipalities do not carry out periodic inspections of public swimming pools. At the swimming pool in De Reeshof in Tilburg early this month, a baby was killed when two rusty loud speakers fell on him. According to Jaap van Duijn a specialist who inspects swimming pools, the main danger is in the use of certain types of steel in swimming pools. The chlorine vapors in swimming pools in combination with the urine found in the water attack the fasteners of elements in the ceiling.
