Interesting article what the CDC found in pools.

One positive is if you don't live in Atlanta area you can hope your fellow swimmers are better at showering and washing.

Love the advice of don't swallow the pool water.

I just read this and I'm thinking I can't wait to start swimming back in the lake again. The sooner the better.

Meh.....not news.  I'm going to print the article and post it on the door to the pool where I swim in the hope that a few people will decide not to swim anymore. Laughing

That's a good idea! I have had difficulties getting a lane lately, maybe this would open it up! If not I bet a well placed Baby Ruth would do the trick

I saw the article and decided not to read it. As someone who is learning to swim I don't want to know what is in all of the pool water I have been ingesting.

They gym pool I swim at on monday and wednesdays has a class of Aqua Zoomba that gets out right before I get in the pool. It always kinda bothers me that there were just 20 or so old ladies dancing. I try not to think about it while doing the laps.

The worst thing I have seen in the pool was someones big toe nail was all black and apparently had fallen off. It gorssed me out every time I hit the wall it was at.

Meh.

I swim 100% in the San Francisco bay and assume that not only is there poop and pee, but also dead things(including people), parasites, bugs, sharks, bacteria of all kinds, trash, rotten food, rogue sea lions, debris of every kind, vomit, chemicals etc.

Aside from the sharks and sea lions basically any open body of water has all of the above and more.

That pool suddenly looks pretty clean

I agree. At least the water at the pool I swim at is continually tested and treated. The pool is never crowded when I swim but if it was I'd probably wish this news kept a few people away.

I got out of the pool today and quoted the stats to a woman who was bout to get in and had not showered. She said "That's disgusting". And got in the pool. Gross.

I'll keep this in mind when I jump into the Hudson river next Saturday. Thank God I won't be in a dirty pool.
