Managing the water in your swimming pool is vital to keeping the pool in good working condition. Water that becomes dirty or stagnant can be unhealthy to swim in, and in some cases, the pool needs to be drained, cleaned and refilled.The aim of this study has been to monitor the microbiological pollution in the pools. Six pools were selected and monitored twice a month over a period, from May 2013 to September 2013. The sites were located near the Tirana and Durres regions, and at the same time near the wells which were supplying the pools with water as well as some villages’ wells around. We have analyzed 260 water samples from the pools. From our samples, most of them contained the general micro flora up to the reference value and most of them had the Total coliform up to the allowed norms. The fecal indicators are higher than the referenced value. It’s important to evaluate the indicators of sewage such as Escherichia coli and Streptococcus fecal, which in our study are in high value. Coliform bacteria is made up of organisms that are present in the environment and in the faces of the warm-blooded animals and humans. Out of 826 cases diagnosed by appropriate methods, 72 cases were found with fungi and Chlamydia. In addition, Staphylococcus was found in 39% of the cases.
