Posters

These posters can be used to help raise awareness about recreational water illnesses (RWIs) and pool chemical safety. They are designed for all swimmers, parents with young children, and pool operators. Display the RWI posters in highly visible public areas (for example, in bathroom stalls, in shower areas, near diaper changing stations, and around kiddie pools) where patrons can easily see and read them before getting into the water. Display the pool chemical safety poster in areas where pool chemicals are used and stored (for example, in pool chemical pump rooms).

Pool Operation

Designed for public pool operators and residential pool owners, these posters provide education and reminders about using and storing pool chemicals safely. The two posters are available each in English and Spanish.

Laminated posters can be ordered for FREE thanks to the generous financial support of the American Chemistry Council.
