Chlorine is supposed to take care of most of the bugs floating around in pools, but human waste, it seems, is resistant. CDC reports that in recent tests more than 50% were ccontaminated with E. coli. When a pool is properly chlorinated though the ph levels should be killed off properly.
Here are some additional recommendations from the CDC for ensuring a bug-free dip:
Don’t swim when you have diarrhea.
Shower with soap before you start swimming.
Take a shower to rinse off before you go back into the water.
Take bathroom breaks every 60 minutes.
Wash your hands after using the toilet or changing diapers.
Try not to swallow the pol water.
Take children to bathroom breaks every 30 minutes, check diapers frequently.
Do not change diapers at poolside.
REMEMBER YOU SHOULD ALWAYS BE ABLE TO SEE THE BOTTOM OF THE POOL CLEARLY!
