New Study: Keep Kids With Diarrhea Out of Pool - Swim Diapers Not Best Solution
Date:5/12/2009

Research confirms that swim diapers do not prevent spread of waterborne, disease-causing germs.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- A new scientific study demonstrates that swim diapers will not prevent the spread of the most common cause of documented recreational water illness (RWI), Cryptosporidium (Crypto). Scientists from the University of North Carolina-Charlotte (UNC-Charlotte) reported at the Swimming Pool & Spa International Conference in London, England (March 17-20, 2009) that swim diapers help slow the release of disease-causing germs, but the benefits are short lived. Crypto is spread when swimmers ingest some water that has been contaminated by diarrhea from infected people or mammals. To prevent the spread of Crypto, officials advise that people should not get in the water if they have diarrhea.

The researchers measured the amount of microspheres that released from swim diapers worn by children. The microspheres have a similar size (five microns) to that of Crypto. Normal swim trunks, common disposable diapers and reusable diapers with and without vinyl diaper covers were tested. Swimming trunks without a swim diaper of any kind had the poorest performance - almost 90% of the microspheres were released into the water within one minute.

Swim diapers released about 50% of the microspheres within one minute. A vinyl diaper cover placed over a disposable swim diaper slightly improved performance. Still, over 25% were released into the water within two minutes. "When a fecal accident contains about a billion disease-causing Crypto oocysts, hundreds
