    Welcome to our _ool. Notice there is no P in it?

    Study claims 1 in 5 Americans pee in the pool; do you? - Phoenix Arizona news, breaking news, local news, weather radar, traffic from ABC15 News | ABC15.com

    The group surveyed 1,000 adults and found one in five (17%) admitted to peeing in the pool. And an astounding eight in 10 (78%) believe their fellow swimmers are guilty of using the pool as a bathroom.

    The group also found that only one-third of the swimmers they surveyed showered before getting in the water.
    Eww...

    Sounds like they should be more worried about people showering after the leave the pool...

    I couldn't tell you the last time I was in a public pool, but yes, I probably peed in there.

    Only when I'm drunk. I probably add a gallon to the pool when I'm drunk.

    Apparently 22% of people are delusional about pool usage.

    I never pee in the pool, but I know how to stop it from happening.

    There's this parasitic catfish, called a candiru, in the Amazon that is attracted to blood and urine. It finds the source, and if it's human, burrows into their genitals, and sets its barbs so it can't be pulled out.

    A couple of those in the water should do the trick.



    Forever trying to find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

    Yes. Public or private.

    And I pee in the shower too.

    Yes, I have peed in a pool, and no, I have no shame about it. You do realize the kind of impact that one cup of urine will have over a thousand, if not a million, gallons of water will be extremely minimal, especially if that water is chlorinated. Plus I'm hardly the first to do so and I'll hardly be the last.

    The same people complaining about someone peeing in the pool should investigate what hot dogs are made of - and whether they want to be ingesting that out of free will or not... (yes, I do eat hot dogs, don't care what's in them either, but I'm also not one of those that complains about people peeing in the pool)

    I can't stand public pools or hot tubs. They're dirtier than my mind is on a daily basis.

    What about the person who has to swim through that pee, though, right after you do it? Don't tell me you've never swam by a little kid and found a warm patch - you knew exactly what it was. If you're like me, you spent the next five minutes dry-heaving - but not in the pool.

    Reminds me of the Simpsons episode "Lisa the Vegetarian" where she is thinking about where all our processed meat products come from, and she thinks about hot dogs:



    Hot dog ingredients:

    • Raccoon feet
    • Rat tail
    • Pigeon head
    • Leather boot

    There are not pigeon heads in hot dogs.

    some things in life aren't avoidable. There will always be pee in any pool.

    If the pool serviceman (owner) keep the chemicals in place and at a safe/healthy level.. there isn't anything to worry about ... but the warm spots.

    -keep

    This. Its been a long time since I've been in a public pool, but I'd say I'd be more worried about the stray bandaid floating around then the warm spots.
