But here’s something to consider before you dive in … A survey found that 51% of people admit to using the pool as an alternative to a shower or a bath after exercising or doing yardwork -- even though 64% say they understand that pool chemicals do not eliminate the need to shower. Here are some other survey findings you probably don't want to hear:
- 40% of people admitted to peeing in the pool.
- 24% say they would go in the pool within one hour of having diarrhea.
- 48% say they never shower before swimming.
