Is it safe to swim at Bear Paddle?

Our maintenance and cleaning team regularly disinfects each location, including but not limited to door handles, tables, floors, benches, sinks, fixtures, toilets, and diaper changing stations.

Our chlorinated water and ultraviolet filtration system offer complete protection for our customers and employees.

How does Bear Paddle maintain the cleanliness of their swimming pools?
Bear Paddle tests the water chemistry of pools before, during, and after every 30-minute shift. This way, we can guarantee compliance with CDC’s guidelines. In terms of disinfection, we use chlorinated water and ultraviolet light to kill 99.99% of disease-causing bacteria and viruses. Moreover, most of our pools utilize Defender Filtration systems powered with Diatomaceous Earth (DE) media. Due to these filters, we can remove particles up to one micron. For better understanding, red blood cells are approximately 5 microns, so our disinfection systems provide a safe swimming experience for you and your family.
