Everyone knows to stay away from yellow snow, but what about yellow water?
According to a recent study conducted by the Water Quality & Health Council, one in five Americans pees in the public pool.
Almost 20 percent of Americans using public pools admit to have relieved themselves in the public pool because apparently climbing out and going to the bathroom is too much work. Of course, this 20 percent only accounts for those willing to admit it because “most everyone surveyed thinks their fellow swimmers are guilty of using the public pool as a potty place.”
The same survey also found that roughly a third of all Americans pass by the shower before taking a dip.
And if you aren’t grossed out yet, a less specific finding shows almost half of all Americans (47%) admit to one or more behaviors that contribute to an unhealthy pool. One can only guess what exactly these unsafe behaviors are…
Oh well, that’s what chlorine is for right?
