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.

Answer Humm, my answer would be to use 12.5% liquid chlorine and plenty of it. much cheaper than the product above. BUT.. +++ Although you can… shock-dose the pool, as I think you imply, the total chlorine level in the pool before anyone uses it should still be from 2 to 4ppm. Also ensure the pH is correct before adding any disinfectant.
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
as a swimmer, can personally say that many of the best do. most good coaches won't want their kids hopping in and out of practice to pee, so the chlorine kills the urine anyw…ays. Answer everyone under the age of 10 does... and im sure there are some people over ten that also do.
It depends on two factors: 1) The size of the pool. Some go from 10 ft. around, while others may stretch to three yards in length. 2) The size of the people. If you put yo…ung kids in say a 10 ft. round pool, you'll be able to fit more of them than if you put obese adults in it. There's one in Mexico that is 1000 metres long and 200 metres wide, you could porbably get 1,000,000 in that.
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).
Here are just a couple of reasons: 1. Many people don't wash before they go in the pool. 2. People urinate whilst still in the pool. You can accidentally swallow some of the… water.
no it is not but if you have an accident don't worry, there are chemicals in the pool water to deal with such accidents.
Pregnant women can go swimming in well-maintained pools throughout their pregnancy. Some doctors recommend stopping during the last few weeks. Check in with your doctor.
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.
Since some people don't live near an ocean, river, or other large body of water, a swimming pool allows for recreational fun and aquatic exercises in areas that wouldn't have …it by natural means.
oh yeah but best make it a boys only naked and girls clothed. much better ok
Yes Lots,,,,,,,,,, I Enjoy It Once A Week, At Least
Two reasons: First, the volume of a human body is quite low compared to the volume of even a moderate sized swimming pool. If you jump into an Olympic-sized pool, you're onl…y going to increase the water depth by a small fraction of an inch. Second, they have overflow drains to prevent it.
Yes, someone stole 500 gallons for over 5 weeks...true story ;D
Simply by staying away from it,it picks up very little space so staying away from it is as easy as 123...........i have had an experience as a child when my older brother was …threading water with me on his back,the suction started pulling him down,with him losing control and me not being able to swim,luckily his girl friend was around so she got a hold of me while he got some control.....so never go near to a suction,always stay clear and be aware if there is more than one suction holes.
