Preventing Pee in the Pool

There is no pretty way to say “pee in the pool.” But the topic isn’t that pretty to begin with. The National Swimming Pool Foundation recently published an article with their recommendations on reducing urine in the pool.

Before we even get in the pool, encourage everyone to use the bathroom. Being submerged in the water actually stimulates the body to create more urine.

Everyone at the pool plays a role in prevention:

Swim Coaches: require a bathroom break 30-60 minutes into the practice.

Parents: schedule an “out of pool” time for a snack, sunscreen, and bathroom break every 30-60 minutes.

Facility Managers: schedule short breaks to encourage people to exit the water. (example: 10-minute “adult only” swim time). Also post signage that suggests showering and using the bathroom before getting into the pool.

Swimming has so many health benefits on top of being a fun activity. So let’s keep it healthy and take the “pee” out of pool.
