Therefore, this study aimed to determine the fungal Contamination of Hamedan indoor Swimming Pools in 2016.

Methods: In this study, 3 indoor swimming pools of Hamedan, during 9 months 2016 in terms of fungal contamination were studied. To determine fungal contamination(saprophyte and dermatophyte) of the sample, Sampling of water in test tubes in a sterile screw and samples from different environmental surfaces in each pool (shower, dressing room surface, the chair and sit in the sauna, bath, platforms, around the pool) sterile carpet collection method was used. The samples separately on the specific media (Mycosyle Agar and SDA were inoculated and cultured using standard methods.

Results: Results of the present study showed that from all the 720 cultivated samples, 513sampleswere positive for one or more fungal contamination including 288 mould saprophyte 56.14%), 216 yeast saprophyte (42.1%) and 9 dermatophyte pathogenic fungi (1/75%).
