Society has undergone a sea change in the last few years, and the ripples still reverberate in the aquatics industry. Users are more concerned with health and hygiene issues. That creates extra maintenance, but by whom? Staffing has become much more difficult post-pandemic.
There’s another change in the wind, too, one that could be beneficial for the aquatics industry. America’s getting older.The Urban Institute estimates that the number of Americans ages 65 and older will more than double over the next 40 years, reaching 80 million in 2040. Swimming and water exercise is recommended for seniors by everyone from AARP to cardiovascular physicians. Older adults may well be the next big wave of pool-users.
The trick now is to make swimming pools and their surrounding areas hygienic, easy to maintain, and accessible to all users. Ojmar can help.

Keep your team happy: Reduce pool room locker maintenance. How?
Ojmar’s locks are ADA-compliant and easy to use. An integrated handle ensures that people can open them with one hand (a boon for people carrying lots of gear, too). Larger buttons are easier to see and simpler to manipulate. Even our combination locks have accessories available to assist users with disabilities. These attributes make them perfect for everyone—from seniors attending water aerobics classes to young families using water park lockers.
