Urinating and sweat in the pool

It’s not only disgusting to think that there is a risk to swim in other people’s urine if one takes a swim in the pool. Urine can also cause irritation and breathing problems when mixed with chlorine.

Recent studies show that nitrogen from urine and sweat reacts with chlorine to form substances that irritate the eyes and mucous membranes.

That makes it even more important to educate people about the importance of being careful with hygiene rules.
