The aim of Swim-Free is to raise awareness about the quality of the water that surrounds us. Our goal is to make people aware of the possible contamination of their local swim spots.

We can't say that any body of water is safe to swim in. That judgement is up to you, and we recommend you do your own research on any site before taking a dip. The Outdoor Swimming Society has many fantastic articles you should read before you dive in.

Wherever you are, always follow the Outdoor Swimmer's Code.

Please don't use this app as justification for swimming anywhere. We're not water scientists (or lawyers!), we're two people that love swimming outdoors and are passionate about cleaning up our waterways and increasing access to freshwater.

If you have any ideas, feedback, or just want to chat, please send us an email.
