If you are not awake, this may help...84 percent of people admit they urinate in the pool.

Surely, there have been many studies done on this subject. Thus, you may hear of different figures. However, a person I work with told me about this study. He said that 84 percent of people admit they urinate in the pool. I don't know if this includes children, but surely we know adults are included. That is the percentage of people who admit it. How about the ones who don't admit it? That is a lot of urine in the pool. Pee in the pool is not quite snakes on a plane but still. I am a pool maintenance worker. Between the chemicals I put in the pool and knowing that people urinate in the pool, I never get in that pool unless I absolutely have to. Usually the only time I have to touch the water is to test it. What goes through the mind of a person who does urinates in the pool? And if they do it, they know others do it. Yet, they have no problem being in it. Thoughts on this?

That is not an easy feat. How will you know if nobody has urinated in the pool?

@MsBooklover You add a fake shark or crocodile, if someone urinates, they will do so before they enter the pool. Or it could be your own personal swimming pool where you know nobody dipped in before. Well, not many options available.

How can you tell if they have used it in that manner or not?

@mandala100 I always loved to drink chlorinated water. Urine is as disgusting as spit or traces of dirt from people who don't wash themselves.

Eww, I thought it was just a legend. I never peed in a swimming pool but I will admit I did so in the sea. I was a kid when I did, now my bladder won't function if I'm in water. But sea and pool are different situations, it usually doesn't take long to reach the restroom.

It is not a legend in the USA. Maybe it is different in Italy.

I never used a pool. Haven't been in one since early childhood. I have no desire to go in one now.

That is smart thinking. You don't want to expose yourself to anything unhealthy.

I read this a few days ago but didn't respond at the time. You spoiled my swimming time in the pool. Yesterday I only stayed in the pool a few minutes but made sure no water entered my nose, mouth or eyes. Any suggestions on how to swim in a pool and not get sick? How about if I went early in the morning before anyone else shows up?

I am so sorry I ruined your time in the pool, but honesty is the best policy. No, that does not help. The water is not drained each day. However, there are chemicals that are put in the pool to kill bacteria. But then...you have chemicals. To be honest, I would never swim in the pool. I only put my hand in it long enough to get a water sample to test. There was only one time that I got in when I was vacuuming the pool because my hose was stuck. I got in up to about five inches below my knees. The only pool I would ever get in is my own pool which would be easier to control. Of course, I do not have one. My suggestion is that you get in the tub and take a few toys with you.

@1hopefulman You could invite your wife if the tub is big enough.

I find that really gross. I always tell my 6 year old daughter that she should never pee in the pool. She never does. Even in her own inflatable swimming pool. I personally dislike public pools. I don't really mind if it's a private pool and if I know it's been cleaned. I can't imagine how people can actually take that. Shows a lot about their idea of hygiene. Yuck.
