Urine Present in all Pools: Study

Urine Present in all Pools: Study

Think twice the next time you think of diving into the pool. The findings of a Canadian study make interesting reading.

Key takeaways:

– Researchers carried out tests on 31 pools and hot tubs and discovered urine in all of them.

– They found up to 8 gallons of urine in an 110,000-gallon pool and 18.5 gallons in a 220,000 gallon pool.

– Their findings were even worse for hot tubs which contained three times the urine content of the worst pool.

Urine itself isn’t a threat, but can react with chlorine to create “disinfectant byproducts,” which can be harmful.
