What is the overall effect on the pool and other people if people continuously urinate in swimming pool?
Ewwww! First, it is gross to just think about it. When you swim, you get water in your mouth, nose, ears, eyes, etc. So there is a psychological effect, the person wouldn't swim knowing there is pee in the pool. So the ole "What you don't know, wont hurt you" applies to this subject. Physically? No effect at all unless the person peeing has hepititis or some other disease which spreads on contact from the urine. Just shower after swimming, you will be fine. Peeing in the pool will use up any free chlorine that is present and the pool will be unsanitary. There are several other communicable deseases that could be caught in an unsanitary pool or a pool with low chlorine levels. YUK.

Borax is a safe alternative Borax is perfectly safe in swimming pools. We started using it in our inground pool two years ago and would not use anything el…se. Not only is it less expensive (a lot less expensive) but the water feels softer when we use it. My husband had to spend some time convincing me that Borax works and works safely but I'm very glad he did. Our pool has never looked better. We had been buying every product that the pool store told us we needed (we did need it didn't we?) One summer they couldn't get our pool water cleared up so in frustration my husband turned to the internet and the use of Borax. We saved a bundle and our pool cleaned up beautifully. Hope this helps you.
You shouldn't add chemicals to a pool in which people are swimming. Add the chemicals, ensure that you've made the correct adjustment to the water chemistry and that the water… is safe, and then allow people back in. To be honest, it probably wouldn't hurt them - but it wouldn't be wise.
Yes. Running the pool filter pump while swimming has no adverse effects to the swimmers.
This is more personal preference than anything. It is recommended that the pump be on all the time, but usually only running it a couple hours a day will usually circula…te the water enough. You want to run it to circulate the chemicals and to keep the surface clean from debree. Good luck. I could not disagree more ---- Running the filter while swimming makes more sense since you want to remove the contaminants that you add to the pool from your body and from what you track in on your feet. Running the filter for several hours after swimming is also recommended. It should take from 6 to 8 hrs per day to turn the whole body of water over thru the filter depending upon your pump. Two or a "couple" of hrs. per day is totally inefficient. What that minimum turn over rate does is leave what the filter could not filter out that day and leave it for the next day -- to contaminate what already has been filtered clean - compounding the problem. Thus you never quite get a grasp on truly clean, clear, sanitized, filtered water. Having partially contaminated water increases the use of chlorine, algaecide, and other harsh products. This above applies to gray or cloudy or green water or all combined. Good filtration and proper water chemistry are the key factors in good pool health -- for the water -- for your health. Having cloudy or gray water can and will be harmful to your health. There are several pathogens, parasites etc in this type of water -- Cryptosporidium - a parasite - which cannot be seen -- causes diarrhea. Other microbes can make you very ill. People especially females are susceptible to many of these disease causing parasites. k
I think it is important to take a bath to clean off all the dust, sweat from body and also washing off any bacteria or germs from body. It's not only important for health reas…ons but also for psychological reasons. This ensures that everybody is assured that people jumping into water are clean and care for others.
A pool with too low of a pH will have corrosive water. It will start to wear out pool linings, fade swimsuits, and cause uncomfortable effects for swimmers. A pool with too hi…gh of a pH will have issues with buildup and scaling on the lining. The water will also be very cloudy. The best pH for a pool is slightly basic at around 7.2-7.4.
About 5,000 people every year blimey
Yes Lots,,,,,,,,,, I Enjoy It Once A Week, At Least
no not really. it will disolve in to the pools chemicals and that's what makes it invisable. :] The concentration from one or two little accidents is too small to see, bu…t it is urine, perspiration etc that is responsible for sore eyes etc. In chlorine-treated pools at least, they react with the disinfectant to produce unpleasant irritants and release chlorine. The chlorite itself does not cause irritation when used in the correct dilution (2 - 4ppm).
I would say 6 adults
Good health through exercise
In 2004 250 children under the age of 18 drowned in a swimming pool. In 2006, 300 children drowned in a swimming pool. These are US numbers.
A shallow pool will not allow large swim strokes and will not require you to tread water. Deeper water will not let you swim underwater for long distances without stopping… to tread water.
30 mins-1 hour
I would chlorinate the pool and run filter for several hours, and you will be fine
