Did You Pee In The Pool? How Many People Do?

We’ve had a pool for more than seventeen years. I am aware that people, frequently kids, pee in the pool. But, I must admit surprise at a new survey that claims

20% of adults admit that at some point, they’ve peed in a pool.

The Water Quality & Health Council talked with a thousand people and discovered that many use the pool as a toilet. Also, more than 68% said they don’t shower before getting in a public pool — even though nearly all respondents said they’d never use someone else’s bathwater.

Swimming is not a substitute for bathing. It’s important to shower before you jump in the pool to help keep swimming healthy for everyone in the pool.”

Most people think it is an excess of chlorine that makes your eyes red and irritated after swimming —instead,  it’s a mixture of sweat, cosmetics and urine combined with the chlorine.

That pool suddenly doesn’t seem so inviting, does it? I’m gonna try not to think about it when I hit the pool on Saturday.
