Such a conclusion was made by Rita Moyes a microbiologist at the University of Texas. She examined 43 water image, taken in the public and private jacuzzi.
Each of the samples was recorded the growth of various microbes. The results are plunged researcher into shock, who stated that she saw only the tip of the iceberg since the analysis carried out on a limited number of microorganisms, which are much more in fact.
At 1 liter water taken from the tap contains about 138 bacteria and in the same amount of water taken from the jacuzzi more than 2 million. According to the results of the studies and microbiological analysis in 95% jacuzzi intestinal bacteria were found, pathogenic fungi are present in 81% jacuzzi and 34% jacuzzi contain staphylococci, which represent a potential threat to human life.
The chemical method for jacuzzi pipes cleaning is virtually impossible, and therefore, if the pipes are used often, this creates a favorable environment for the growth and accumulation of pathogens of various infections. According to Moyes, these microorganisms are highly resistant to most detergents.
At that time, the water that streams from nozzles which are arranged on the walls of the bath is already infected with bacteria. These jets penetrate into all the holes of the human body that does not occur while taking a conventional bath.
Microbiologist argues that these microorganisms can cause infection of the urinary tract, lungs, and skin, and therefore pose a serious danger to people with weak immune systems, the elderly and children.
