Ear Plugs For SwimmingWhether you enjoy swimming in a lake or in the pool, custom swimmer's ear plugs help prevent common swimming related health problems known as swimmer's ear. Specially designed to block water, swimmer’s ear plugs are custom moulded to make a perfect seal with the unique shape of your ear.

Benefits of Custom Ear Plugs for Swimmers

  • Prevent water from entering the ear canal
  • Help prevent painful ear infections
  • All day comfort means you will forget they are in
  • The plugs are more likely to be used because they are comfortable

Lakes Water Quality Changes Quickly

With recent headlines such as the Gimli sewage leak and natural E-coli outbreaks, protecting your ears from potentially contaminated water is a good idea. While health risk warnings go out quickly, there is always the period between when you are enjoying the beach and waves to when you hear of the warning.

Preventing water entering the ear canal to protect them from serious infection.

Swimming Pools & Health Warnings

We looked into a few recent Health Inspector reports to gauge the health risks associated with swimming pools. While the number of places closed were not overwhelming, there were enough to give us pause. We found several apartment complexes, resorts and hotel swimming pools across Manitoba have been closed for “inadequate water quality” violations of one kind or another. While lists like this help inform the public, the inspectors have limited resources and can only test periodically.

Custom Moulded Swimmers Ear Plugs

Getting plugs made for your ears is painless and easy. The first step is to make an ear impression. A foam block or “ear dam” is placed deeply into the ear canal and then the canal is filled with a silicone material using a large syringe. Once fully hardened, the impression is removed and sent to a laboratory that makes a cast. From the cast the lab technician then molds the final earplug with your choice of colours.
