Pools are for Swimming


     In health matters, public health officials are reminding people not to treat swimming pools like toilets.  The C-D-C  says nearly 2,000 people became sick in 2011 and 2012 from contaminated pool water and one person died.  More than three-quarters of the outbreaks were linked to swimming pools treated with chlorine and other disinfectants.  In fact, the C-D-C says burning eyes are a  symptom from chlorine reacting to urine .  People are encourage to shower before and after swimming…  stop for frequent bathroom breaks…  and try not to swallow the pool water.
